Cancer - Poem by VAIDYANATHAN.T. RAM

It was a new born baby,
Could be a month old,
With charming and nourishing,
Sweet cheeks, feels like to bite,
Cute red lips like painted with blood,
mom had no time to leave her alone,
Some children's who were around,
Were playing with her like a doll,
The children's had no mood to leave her,
The baby made others smile,
Who were in sorrow,
The god had gifted the baby to the couples,
But they were not happy, why? ..........
The god should not have gifted, why?
Was it due to any sin made by baby?
Was it due to any sin made by her mom or dad?
Was it due to any sin made by her ancestors?
What made this questions,
This questions were asked to god as
She was suffering with cancer.

    This is too bad. The poem expresses emotions elegantly. But I am saddened by the message. At times, this is true too. I do not blame the Poet. But it is painful, even to imagine. (Report) Reply

    Having cancer at such a young and tender age, and still be filled with joy and happiness, playing with other children, smiling and not noticing the cancer, just the beauty of life surrounding her through nature. Heart wrenching poem, and yet a poem of beauty in life that you've portrayed so perfectly within it. Fantastic poem, I love it! My favorite now! . Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Verily, a heart touching poem,
    Some things in life are unanswerable
    as only God knows it.
