What Have You Learned From Your Pain? - Poem by richard ilnicki

When they saw me
on my back eyes

fixed to the ceiling,
my once lively condition
had deteriorated to the point
of being unrecognizable.
They felt sorry
for the abandoned but not forgotten,
the famished
but not forsaken poor old me.

Their most lamentable lamentations
were well received,

what they didn't know
was what I had been learning
while on my back
being bathed in pain.
