You have one of me and I’m easy to touch,
I’m hard to look at, but you can in a clutch.
Yet you’re told to watch me, or get your friends’.
I’m often referred to when you make amends.
You can throw me out but not away,
I cause many pain, every day.
What am I?
Your back. You have one and it’s easy to touch but hard to look it. A common phrase is to “watch your back” and it’s common to “have your friend’s back.” When apologizing, you often want to take back what you said. You can throw out your back, but you can’t throw it away. And back pain causes people pain every day.
