Poem: The Pain

Some days are up days, some days are down days. That is just part of life’s roller coaster.

The Pain
Of a life, changed for ever,
Of a world, different, somehow.
Of a mind, damaged, yet fighting
The pain.

The grief
Of a loss, insurmountable,
Of loss of control, adaptation.
Of what could have been, if they listened.
The Grief

The distress
Of helplessness, relying on others
Of endless time, yet no time to adapt
Of a hopeless situation, or is it?
The Distress

[Poem by Melanie Ryding]
