An Ode to Suffering

July 16, 2017

An Ode to Suffering. Haiku style.

 

Anticipation

Still and dark, the hazy glow

As focus ensues

 

The day unfolds, yet

not with ease, the doubt seeps in

And clouds the mind grey

 

The body follows

suit, and soon all is shattered,

tiny pieces fall

 

Yet they pursue, the

Reason unknown, except to

Prove stronger the mind

 

The day is not lost

No, merely a different lens

To see the journey

 

And under that lens

The tumultuous journey,

transcends into grace

 

Bright, triumphant end

Troubled journey leads to a

Beautiful ending

 

It is such a day

That defines us to the core

And makes us feel alive

 

Do we hide in fear,

No, we welcome the fight

The struggle, brilliant

 

And for this we will

Ever be thankful, for

Discovering strength

 

This does not define

Us, we define it, and rise

Above our demise.
