Songs Of My Pain - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

My soul is the home
of a wounded butterfly.

It sings in prayer
at dawn and dusk.

Heal not my wounds!

Let my songs be born
from the pain of my wounds.

    Love this poem, especially the last line! Our pains can be experienced by sharing them with others in our songs. A beautiful expression of compassion. Thank you very much for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I like the first lines:

    My soul is the home
    of a wounded butterfly.

    A rich picture you have painted in this piece.
    Hugs and kisses.
