Try This To Kill Your Pain (Any Pain Including Cancer) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Play Poem Video

The moon glows
in bright yellow

The moon takes in all my pain
to glow in bright yellow

The more the pain
the greater the strength of its glows

The moon comes a-calling
first peeping
through the window
then takes leave
from the sky
roll from the tree,
and over the window
to the table and to my bed circling softly round
comforting my head
taking in all my aches
encasing them all in her
round body
The more it take my torments
The brighter it becomes
till my pain is now
a bright great mersmerising moon, rolling, rowing
over my whole physique
a mom taking all care, bearing all sins
to make sure her child is in full ease

the moon, with each
throb of my pain
it increases in its brighteness

the moon with each
throb of my pain
it increases in brightness

giving my life
a new lease of hope

taking away all my aches

    The power of thought is immense, and grossly underestimated. I do believe this could work! An unusual poem but fascinating.....
