Karma and the Headache

I have a headache.
I could take a pill
But I'd feel better then.

If I've been bad,
I should feel bad
Not dodge that bullet.

If I cut
Do I not bleed?
Should I not bleed?

Not punished
By my pain
But in charge of it.

I learn
To avoid
That which causes pain.

The pill
Teaches nothing
But how to cheat myself.

I sit then
With myself
And I endure with a smile.
