a lie, yes a lie

No pain, no gain!
Who said that?
What a sadist!
Break the heart,
what do you want?
Blow the spirit,
does it come again?
Some may regenerate
like an inveterate clown
when some can’t take it
with the heartstrings pulled
tweaked, pinched, and torn
Till their souls refuse to stay
besieged, assaulted within.
So, never say once again
Pain is s necessary gambit
with stacks of aces hidden
because it simply isn’t
but a swaggering fiddlestick.
