Ode to the Sufferings of Mankind

Prompt: Drawer
Form: Ode
Device: Apostrophe

We think our sufferings are all in vain,16537918922_c82ef1d375_z
Fruitless pain which brings no gain.
Memories of agony we stash away
In the drawers of our mind – every day.
The more we run, the more we hide.
The more we realise we live in a lie.16440884156_cafd299110_z

You bring trials – hardships, distress.
4359321667_43425b8373_zThus you’re shunned away.
You bring repentance – the key to new life.
Yet still we run away.
For we so fear pain, we do not see grace.
Blessed are those who find joy in you!
