No Pain, No Gain

No Pain, No Gain

written by: Nikki Watson


“No pain, no gain” may be true
But comfort and gratitude can be too.

Live in life and be present,
Grow thru the strife and embrace the pleasant.

Believe in more than meets the eye
Challenge the thoughts – honestly try.

Struggle and pain don’t need to define
Every aspect that I call mine

I can be shaped with tools that are tender.
Acknowledge the blessings and surrender.
