The last time I seen his eyes.
I've heard em' say "it's better to feel pain than nothing at all" but I've felt pain and all its done is turn me numb. My grandfather leans closer and talks in a real quiet deep tone like the kind of person he was; but you don't learn from nothing at all, it's the pain that brings you to the end only for you to start all over again. The numbing is to show you you are vulnerable and new. You can fill yourself with your wildest dreams. Theres a short of time for us here and you must use it wisely. And the last time I seen his eyes, he looked so thankful.

This is awesome! I like the feeling of really learning something form someone who has had years, and years to learn it, and also seeing that he might have been thankful for all the years he had to learn form pain? Pain brings the ability to grow, I think. Nice piece @WyattHaste :)

"And the last time I seen his eyes, he looked so thankful" - Considering that it was just Thanksgiving, I really liked this line. There are a lot of things that can be faked or altered through speech, but I do not know if it is possible to be deceived by someone's eyes. Great piece! @WyattHaste

The first line is strong - it made me think! ""I've heard em' say "it's better to feel pain than nothing at all" but I've felt pain and all its done is turn me numb." The image reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson. Is it related?

Yes, I find HST very fascinating as well. Have you also read his writing for ESPN?
