Pain Still - Poem by Gabriel Owino Jr.

Seeing the damage we can cause
we try to get away
we try to unfeel what is between
but we're victims of our own weaknesses
we run back and damage more
why, why
because we have it in us
its why we cry at birth

    An insightful piece of poetry, well encapsulated and nicely penned with conviction. Indeed, the potential for good and bad(evil) are continued in us, it's a primal instinct and we are all born that way. A lovely poem bristling with knowledge. Thanks for sharing Gabriel. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
