In Hell, only Pain is Truthful...

By AdrianJ

In Hell, Only Pain is Truthful...

With every accomplishment, accolade or moment of elation
A secret tally is kept in suffering...

Only pain is real

Pain brings growth
Pain brings understanding
Pain teaches us

First comes the test, then comes the lesson...
