Pain can wake you up.
Pain can shut you down.
It can fill you with manic energy.
Or leave you so exhausted you can’t think.
It can be fast and jarring.
Or slow and agonizing.
Fueled with numbing adrenaline.
Or nerves firing with the slightest move.
It can make you feel strong.
It can make you feel weak.
It is a double-edged blade.
