Pain

Pain short poem

Photo by zabethanne

Pain fills my room,
Sweat and fear surrounds me.
I will cry if I move
But I have no choice.

We are learning to walk,
Go up and down stairs.
We are all grown children
Being taught to survive.

You’re alone with your pain
And a touch feels like fire.
What could be worse?
The shame or the fear.

With tears in my voice,
I say I need help,
A hand touches my shoulder
And the fear disappears.

A voice says,” I’m here,
And what can I do?”
A stranger shows love
And my fears turn to calm.

A long way to go
But now not alone.
With their love an help
I soon will go home.

Pain, small at first, creeping slowly Towards the heart of those loved And those who love A joke, ignored in the silence caused By soft, small pain A boy, desperate for answers Scanning the numbers and percents Trying to stop
