I am pain.
by Zev J. Meyers

You can't see me
You don't know me
You may not even realize, that I am here
 
I am hidden
For my hiding adds to the effect of my labors
My existence not easily understood
My methods course and cruel
 
Fairness is not one of my attributes
I do not discriminate
Not bound by gender, by age or by race
Not even your religion can save you
I would pray if I were you
 
To those who I have chosen
To engage upon my war
I do so without purpose or reason
I am unforgiving, unrelenting
Ever constant, I never show mercy
 
I am more than an enemy
Closer than a friend
More intensely intimate than a lover
For me to leave you
You would have to die
 
To some I am a mere acquaintance
Visiting from time to time
For you I may only be a memory
I am a thought and nothing more
 
Relevance is by experience
To each his own they say
I can not argue this is true
It is one of my greatest strengths
Because I do not play by any ones rules
 
Do not grant sympathy
To those who have the pleasure of my company
Do not feel sorry, nor pity
There's nothing you can do
 
I am the subject, no, I am the host
Of TV talk shows
News program specials
On Sunday evenings
Always before the sports scores
 
And I am most humbly noticed
When the name of those who are famous
Grant their face to a bill board, a cause
As the new poster child for my awareness
 
And who am I?

I am pain
.

Zev J. Meyers, 2011
