Poem: I can’t believe it

Back to poetry. This one refers to the pain journey. I had no idea the outcome would be as it was. Even I am shocked.

What becomes normal?

Agony and suffering

When do you accept

And when do you say


When does normal change?

Why do we accept

Limitations, torment and struggle?

Darkness descends, body and mind.


Pain becomes an object,

A weight lifted

A burden cast aside

As I walk free
