Have you ever felt pain?

Acute pain?

Something is not right, you know it

Something far from pain

Shred off the masks, say the truth

Do not only complain

or sustain

The pain

It will come again and again

Till you lose the taste of life there and in between

Nothing is of value anymore

A black cloud colors everything, and drains

The energy from your body, soul and brain

Have you ever experienced such pain?

Go ahead, share your story, there’s nothing to hide or contain

We’re all human, eh?

Are we sure of that, or are we trying to explain?

To each other, to the world, that our life is not in vain

What if this was a dream?

A long nightmare

Full of pain

Full of struggle and disappointment, would you refrain?

from living it, or could you abstain?

Is there an option? Can you submit a complain?

Has anyone asked you to enter the dream?

Have you been aware of what lies ahead?

Do not hide the pain

It will come again

Unless you wake up from the dream

The so long nightmare

There will be no pain


Another nightmare might be waiting around the corner

to suck you in

into an endless sort of pain

From which there’s no escape

Or going back to the first dream

Of lesser pain…

    يا أخي، شعرت بالحزن أو الألم، لا أدري، مذ رأيت العنوان..لكن تناولك له ينطوي على شجاعة، وقد تكون له آثار مفيدة بإذن الله
    إنك تدعو كل متألم إلى البوح، وليس هذا بالأمر السهل، فعل تعتبر نداءك بوحاً كافياً؟

    لا أجد الكثير للتعليق.. لأن الموضوع( مؤلم) لكن اسأل الله تعالى أن يجعل مسيرة الألم مسيرة تطهر وانعتاق ووصول

      The expression of pain is better than suppressing it down the gut. But it’s not enough! The poem is a call for everyone experiencing any kind of pain to talk about it to someone he or she trusts, and then seeks a solution. Coming with terms with the pain is also not enough, it will come again! I’m not an expert and can’t go any deeper, but I guess the message is clear.

      Thanks for your comment. You’re also courageous as being the only one to comment on this sensitive topic. Other people just read, but don’t comment or express. After all, this blog is on Wordexpress 🙂
