In Pain - Poem by Sandra Feldman

Hobbling along,
Disoriented,
Wounded in my Soul,
Hit by an invisible arrow,
Pain is so personal,
Disappointed,
Not anointed,
Not happy at all,
In pain,
In my distress,
Silence, my only caress,
Silence, my only friend,
That loves me the best,
But cannot feel my pain.
Nor help me become happy again.

    Sweet Sandra,

    I send you some ancient Chinese wisdom:

    ... To take the body seriously is to admit one can suffer.
    What does that mean, to take the body seriously is to admit one can suffer?
    I suffer because I am a body; if I weren’t a body, how could I suffer? ...

    Lao Tzu [Laozi], Tao Te Ching [Dao De Jing], Chapter 13 [fragment], Ursula, K. Le Guin, trans.

    If you escape your body by freeing your thoughts to fly away it may ease your pain- it always eases mine.
    You will make those who love you happy if we see you happy!

    Your pain has got a universal touch here.It's the pain of every mortal being.Once or twice in our life we have to face it.None to share but to endure silently.Sandra it's a fabulous job.10 for you. (Report)Reply

    Very touching Sandra and I connect with it so much with my chronic pain and heart ache. A beautiful immaculate piece. (Report)Reply

    Yes, pain is so personal... Another person may be able to share it, but never in equal proportion! Our pain often lies invisibly hidden behind a happy facade! A touching write! (Report)Reply

    Well out of the silence comes my violence
    spreading cheer to you my dear! ! ! ! ! !

    Hey, dig deep, find a smile and wear it
    Don't worry about the mirror, you won't scare it!

    SMILE SF! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
