Pain

Every time I had pain

I used to suffer!

Whether it’s from losing a game

Or unexpected score in final exam

Or separating from a loved one

Or someone suffering from social unjust

Or people’s karmic life shortened my military might!

 

Heart always ached choking voice losing breath!

Made me wonder through empty streets at night

Looking at the sky may be emptiness knows why

Dearest dreams become dear making us cry

Nearest soul evades bondage on the fly

Some people undermine others with hatred and lies!

 

Life went on; eyes became dry, heart normal

Some innocence lost others emboldened

Bad news made me sad but not heart broken

Mind knows the limit beyond which we are helpless

Pains are nothing but tools for surviving experience!
