I refuse to suffer!


Do not make the cross ready
on the gallows of sufferings,
The soul is unwilling to bear any agonizing pain
not even ready to surrender
the last fertile seed of life;
In the pitch dark some stars glow,
after the last storm
the first bud is ready to bloom,
Life's lil fountain keeps some flow
though in the phase of still-birth,
Some sparks are tingling bright inside,
Some forgotten desires still exist,
Some shreds of joy are still not dead,
Let not hope extinguish clean
See! The sun resurrecting
after the dark crucifixion of the last long night
followed by a bounteous downpour of Blessings Divine
for sure, when He does not forget
to nourish the slightest visible vein in the leaf
of some forgotten tree
How can I be left deserted?
I lay my hand
on string of desires and beads of prayers...

    Even God suffers,
    He invented it.
    So there is no call
    to just ignore it.
    If the hand fits the glove
    then wear it. (Report) Reply

    An excellent poem, so energetic and loved the optimistic approach.

    See! The sun resurrecting
    after the dark crucifixion of the last long night

    Yes, a Night, however long, can not prevail forever as every night is followed by a bright Morning and this is the law of nature.

    for sure, when He does not forget
    to nourish the slightest visible vein in the leaf
    of some forgotten tree
    How can I be left deserted?
