Promised Pain

There are patterns within people
And pain within patterns,
Which engulfs us with
Patterned pain
And pained patterns,
Only to be let down
By the pained problem
Of having to promise
Pained change.
But pained change
Brings great things
And so that pained patterns
Wont precisely repeat
And repeat and repeat-

Maybe pained patterns
Bring profound lessons,
But only if they're pained first;
Pained growth
Pained wisdom
Pained courage
Pained -
And maybe promised change
Brings promised peace,
Promised bliss
And promised love
So probably, perhaps,
There is no positive change
Without the promise
Of pain.
