Pain-free living

Pain-free living
by Joel Howard

We all want to be happy
want to buy pain-free living
a million, no a billion!
Yes! That will be enough

If I can buy my way
out of all hardship I face
buy a sacred space,
flee this lowly rat race

Alas! My goal is futile 
Pain pursues me like a detective
looking for his goal
O the pain of my soul!

For when I'd buy freedom
I would hide in rooms, overcome
overwhelmed and incomplete
full of dread and on my knees
still pain would have its way with me
