Pain – Poem

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

8 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
