17 ~ No pain – In vain ~


After undergoing tons of painful procedures

Tests upon tests

Physical & emotional pain,

Thinking we gain “fun” from it.

As they make you crumble

As they question your sanity

As they shake your inner core

As they challenge you,

Face them on!

Granted permission to share.

If they answer not to your call, walk alone.

If they are afraid and cower mutely
facing the wall,

Oh you courageous one,
open your mind and speak out alone.

If they turn away, and desert you when
crossing the wilderness,

Oh you courageous one,
trample the thorns under your feet,
and along the weather-beaten track travel alone.

If they shut doors and do not hold up the light
when the night is troubled with storm,

Oh you courageous one,
with the thunder flame of pain
ignite your own heart,
and let it burn alone.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

Continue the battle

The search for a diagnosis

The treatment you deservedly require

The voice against misunderstanding

The truth against assumptions.

Bring forth

The sun of a new horizon

Shining brightly

As the waves you swim

Create ripple effects

Beyond that which your mind may fathom.


Your war

Your plea

Your fears

Your tears

Your smile

Your courage


Your pain

Not in vain.

– K.M
