Pain – Poem.

No one escapes it
It shakes every soul
You catch glimpses of it
In soiled pillows,
Rainy faces,
Burrowed lines,
Downcast eyes,
Scowls in place of smiles,
Heaving shoulders,
Gasping breaths,
Lost tempers,
Whining lips,
Complaining voices,
But sometimes
It’s so hidden
You will not catch it
Because it will be buried
In places eyes can’t see
And there it will
Crush the soul
Blows so fatal
Insides start to
Die and decay
Little slices of life
Chopped off like pieces of wood
In such gruesome moments
When the pain is unbearable
And your world seems lost
It’s easy to forget
The purpose of pain
The purpose to push
Out of comfort zones
The purpose to teach
Deeper truths
The purpose to re-ignite
Burning embers
The purpose to rebirth
Buried pieces of you

Bible Verse:

If only my request would be granted
and God would provide what I hope for:
9 that He would decide to crush me,
to unleash His power and cut me off!
10 It would still bring me comfort,
and I would leap for joy in unrelenting pain
that I have not denied the words of the Holy One.

Job 6:8-10
