Pain, a Friend?

The insomniac is posting on pain.
We don't like pain. We want to get rid of it.
Yet pain should be our friend.
Sound strange?
Listen to this poem.
Pain, a Friend

Pain comes to you
as a friend.
To warn you
of danger.

A friend you
don’t want.
A friend you’d
like to leave.

When pain is silent
not a good friend.
Awful disaster
may overrun.

Like a good friend
pain talks to us.
Warns us of danger
keeps us from death.
