Tolerance for Pain

 
As we mature our tolerance for pain seems to increase
Experience acts as pain receptors that make symptoms decrease
It’s not like in early life experiences where everything seems so dire
Where everything was so right now and down to the wire
with each incident our skin seems to grow a little thicker
Every experience teaches you to rationalize things just a little bit quicker
No longer does the initial intensity of pain make you want to die
You realize that you’ll get over it and it’s okay right now to cry
After the first time you’ve been hurt you’re coated like an aspirin
It teaches you to be cautious so you don’t want to feel that again
Your next experience with pain encloses you like a Tylenol
Keeping you pain free for longer periods so you don’t lose it all
The next time you encounter pain it holds you together like vicodin
Resting in the acoustic sounds of the strings of life like a violin
If we don’t self medicate and allow pain do what it does
Not falling prey to these or any other kind of drugs
You’ll realize that pain is necessary in the evolution of life
It teaches you perspective and how to do things right
