Lexicon Of Pain - Poem by indira babbellapati

My pain dissolves into poetry
Each poem I write becoming
A part of my growing lexicon
Of growth, evolution and transformation
That helps me move towards
The unknown and uncharted paths

This moment of pain is
More important than
What I suffered in past
Or may suffer in future

Every blink of pain,
A momentous journey
That gives me more confidence
To reach my final destination
With cheer and smile

Each wink of pain
I endure
Is a feather in my cap
That I celebrate

    Sometime pain makes the soul soar high, this is the theme here. The line my pain dissolves into poetry' reminds me the line by a writer: I shed my sickness in art'. I like the line: 'Every blink of pain a momentous journey' because poets are very sensitive. (Report) Reply

    Nice philosophy of pain, Indira! The lines- Each wink of pain / I endure / Is a feather in my cap / That I celebrate- -are really captivating! In this connection I wish you go through my poem- Gain in Pain- if time permits. (Report) Reply
