Pain


Pain
Pain over here pain over there
Pain in my heart pain in my soul
Pain in my mind
Pain in my skin pain in my bones

Pain being caused left and right
Pain being caused till the heart bleeds red
Pain being caused till the skin and bone rip
Pain being caused till you break into tears

Pain at school
Pain at home
Pain in my head, pain in my heart
Pain in my mind, pain in my soul

Pain happening in my sleep
Pain happening in my thoughts
Pain happening when I’m alone
Pain happening in the shower, in my room, in my bed, in my house where I’m all alone
Pain happening every hour, every minute, every second of my life

Pain caused by anger and hate
Pain caused by hurt
Pain caused by greed
Pain caused by sorrow and depression
Pain caused by grief and confusion

Pain caused by your family and friends
Pain caused by the world
Pain caused by people you love

Pain driving me crazy
Causing me to take pills till it fills up my veins
I go to sleep never to wake up and see that light
The light that will end my pain for good

    My only nephew lived a very painful life almost his entire life. He lost his father at the age of six. He developed a skin disorder almost right after that. He endured criticism because of it. As an adult, he had a terrible accident at work which caused him to lose the use of his legs. His pain only grew and grew. He was always in and out of hospitals and rehabilitation facilities. His childhood sweetheart and wife of 21 years also suffered. She became distraught and could not cope with the extent of his suffering. Tammy took her life last July 17,2009. My nephew Alex, lost the love of his life and plunged into the deepest, darkest, saddest world you can imagine. In spite of everyone's attempt to help him, there was no relief for him. Sadly, Alex was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support in the ICU Sunday evening after being found by his mother-in-law. He had taken two bottles of medication and chased it down with alcohal. Alex lost his life Tuesday morning at 9: 15, January 5,2010. Alex and Tammy left behind two beautiful girls 21 and 11 years of age. I went on the internet to look for a poem that would best discribe my dear nephew's life and I found this. I will miss his soft voice and his gentle heart. My world has changed. (Report) Reply

    Being alive makes a person sensitive to the world, you will feel everything that touches your
    emotions: love, hate, happiness, sadness, and even pain itself! But ending it for good is not reasonable at all, let destiny takes care of it! Thanks for sharing, a 10. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
