Turning Pain into Progress

The Hero’s Journey I know to be this

Turning unbearable pain into progress

More difficult than turning frog into prince

But when I try to resist what is

As I’ve done before

It is only a whimpering, witless

Argument with God about the score

I might as well go, as those I admire

Have gone, reluctantly resolved 

And barefoot, on coals of fire
