Now You Know

Now, you know child,

Pain don’t last always.

It’s there to let you know

You’s alive.

Your feelings is raw,

Like an open wound,

But that there pain,

Is a sign that you is healing.

Pain lets you know

When there’s something in your body

That ain’t ‘posed to be there.

Sometimes you can ignore it.

But other times,

You gots to cut that thang out,

Or lance it.

Yes, child,

Sometimes to stop one pain,

You have to do that thing

That will bring more pain.

But that’s life, baby.

That’s how it is, child.

Now, you know.
