Gain In Pain


I fall a prey to great affliction,
Undergo sufferance with botheration.

Why should I undergo pain and fret?
Why should I twitching heartache get?

Why should I undergo this distress?
Why should I have this unhappiness?

I stumble to interpret and expound,
I am helpless to unravel and come around!

In God's wonderful and glorious creation,
There is nothing whatever without reason!

'Oh! God! Why have you thrown me over-board?
Oh! God! Why am I saddled with such a load? '

'Oh! Ye man, when life is trying and troublesome,
Difficult, with misery, formidable and toilsome;

With worry, trials and tribulations,
You are made tough to get invigoration;

You gather spirit, strength and tenacity,
You become chaste, pure with sublimity;

Distress gives you the grit and determination,
To overcome the bitterness in the situation;

With sufferance you learn endurance,
You engender enthusiasm and tolerance;

With pain you restrain and gain wisdom,
You are seasoned, cohesive and solemn;

With affliction you beget verve and inspiration,
You become deeply profound with beatification! '

    Chandra Thiagarajan I enjoyed reading this poem. My only lament as a reader and not as a poet, because I can claim your poems as a reader, and gain from them an infinite moment in the finite moments I have, is why do you still as a poet are so kind to God? Just a thought. Brilliant poem, I loved the quality of words you chose, it shows you truly studied and read, unlike me who never and till date hates studying and reading only googling.

    You temper people just the same way you do steel. Heat and pressure gives superb quality to steel. So too when people are tested they become quality steel. (Report) Reply
