Beauty from Pain

Beauty from Pain

A Poem by LilyMae
"

very rough and simple but i really needed to get it out

"

always there, haunting and hurting

but manageable, constant hope and possibility

problems are there, part of life, expected, the norm

but life is good, friends, family, fun

 

what seems necessary, basic, fundamental, is here

down

         down

                   down

                             but we're still ok, survivors, never really gonna happen

then life seems to stop

        shock, tears, empty, gone,

one thing after another, everything so fast

but almost like, turn around and it'll all be teh same again

talk, eat,

walk, keep it togethor, get through

but always thinking of it, never really stop

                              not gonna survive, goodbye, the end, nothing worse

how is it possible? nothing more to be taken

but now everything gone, family, friends, home

new school, new house, new place, new life, new friends

but the pain doesn't fade, almost a new level

                             below rock bottom, past worst scenario, a type of dying, dead

somehow life goes on, continues all around

but sadly, slowly, weary

small joys, sometimes the pain is forgotten

but always returns, constant nagging

                             slowly, grudging, healing wound

new friends, fun at school, laugh dance

but remainder, painful mend

beach, summer, vacation, talk, normal problems

but wish you could be here for this

                             maybe, just maybe it'll be ok, the meaning comes back, hidden strength revealed

scary times, changes coming, new things

but friends are there new chances

lonely and sad, big school, unknown place and people, unsure

but a new start, vibrant life, fresh scene

                           pain stays, never gone, but used and cherished

                           strength through the years and generations, the gift of Christ

What a wonderful poem. A family's journey through the trials of cancer. The emotions have laid out are ones I know well. Thank you for posting this wonderful poem.

This may have been written quite spontaneously, but it still has certain meanings. In places, it is like a summary of life's journey. Also, it reminds me (espcially near the start), of how important our family and friends really are.

The final verse seems rather dark and negative, except for the final line. Indeed, the last line reminded me of the strength of genuine Christian faith. And the line before that, "but a new start, vibrant life, fresh scene", is quite positive and uplifting! Thankyou, Bella.
