The Miracle Man - Poem by Vikram G. Aarella

Nothing in him is strong
If you ask me what’s wrong? ,
His both eyes have cataract,
Got eyelids which he can’t retract,
He is deaf in one ear,
He can’t see things which are near,
Has infection in the sinus
And polyp in the nose,
His mouth has ulcer,
Cheek has got cancer,
His neck is broken,
His shoulders are frozen,
He has a hole in the heart
His liver doesn’t ever start,
His stomach cannot absorb food in,
His pancreas is lacking insulin,
His kidneys have stopped working
He has pain while peeing
He cannot move his hand,
He cannot walk or stand,
Hasn’t got a body part without problem
Disease is like his emblem,
He has failed miserably to thrive
It’s a miracle that he is still alive.

    A 'miracle' he is still alive? More of a curse I would have said. Poor, poor man.

    A miracle indeed! What suffering, yet there is strength in his will to survive. Kind regards, Justine. (Report) Reply
