Agony And Joy - Poem by Kalyani Rajalingham (Married to Dr. Kane)

Agony and Joy
By Kalyani Rajalingham

Joy and Agony gossiping over a cup of tea:

Joy with proud demeanour claimed

"I am a title, I am a feast

And I shall never perish as I wrestle feeble beasts

I am uplifted and crowned anew

When cheerless souls claim my hue

The wiser man showed me the way

The sadder man sought me night and day

And all have fallen under my touch

Like a bee at the nectar's sweet forbidden touch"

Agony with sin and shame spoke of his existence's fame:

"I am the ally, I am the beacon

I serve, I warn, I guide the rich and the forsaken

And Like the balance that tilts its burdened head

I am found where reason has painfully sinned

True, I while my time not in the sun but the shade

But why, without me, there would be no need for thee"
