Maddie Graham // PAIN

Some think

That physical pain,

Is over exaggerated.


It’s felt

When we don’t want it too.

It’s felt

When something important is there to do.


Why it works this way?

I may never know

Like a nagging sibling?

Never leaving me alone.

Always getting on my nerves.


But that specific pain,

That shocks through my knee

Every time I hit the ice,

From a beautiful jump,

Could be eliminated

With a little break

That I’m not willing to take.
