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

    Like all experiences pain is an education unto itself.
    There many things we learn from pain... survival in one.
    Hunger is another.Burns still another.
    Pain helps set our parameters on our physical and mental limits.
    Overcoming pain is an attribute sought by many.
    Avoiding pain is desired by many.
    But abstainance of pain is unavoidable.
    Learn to deal with pain in it's many facets and you will undoubtedly be a happier person.

    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
