Be not afraid of pain

November 13, 2011

Be not afraid of pain,
For life and pain have been
Such close companions
Ever since the shell of darkness cracked beneath
The Warmth of light;
They say that even God felt pain
When, from eternal womb,
The sun was born.

Be not afraid of pain,
For it is the sure sign of life,
And where there’s life, there’s hope,
Though even hope itself will
Bring sometimes the pain
Of broken dreams.

Be not afraid of pain,
For even though its cup we,
Ourselves,
Must hold and drink,
The touching of a friendly hand
Will give us yet again more strength to cope,
And when we grasp
The hand of God
We have the power of the universe
To ease the yoke
And make the burden light, and so,
Be not afraid of pain.
