This is beautiful and whether the pain that hampers us is physical, emotional or spiritual, your lovely poem applies. Thank you for sharing this.
Beautiful words...and the message is abundantly clear. Lovely job with this. God Bless~
Exquisitely poignant . . .
Pain in my body
makes me feel stilted;
my friends
are so agile
quick and so spry.
While I lean on my cane
life's adventures are
faster and faster passing
me by.

Way to go, Jerseygirl! I can almost know what your are going through, not quite cause I'm not you, but the above words could have come from my diary.
Beaufitul, just beautiful. Your love for Him and your faith shouts out in this one.
Really good jerseygirl, Something I think that everyone can relate to in some way is pain and hardship. I would have liked to see the purpose for these difficulties "discovered" in your piece, but perhaps it is enough to leave us thinking. May God allow you to see you what we see so clearly; that you are a tremendous blessing to the world.
Thank you for so eloquently expressing your pain, your fatith and your love for Christ.
God Bless.
What a beautiful heartfelt poem. And what a wonderful message. Loved it.
I was pulled in, and deeply inspired by your words. Very touching and truth. Looking forward to reading more of your poetry and writings. God Bless!
Stunning poem my dear. Our pain does bring glory to Him if we see past it and through it. You did a splendid job making this an application we can all appreciate.
This is really lovely. I have lived with chronic pain for more than half of my life and while I despise the pain, I love the opportunities it brings to glorify God. Congratulations on ranking 9 in level two! HAPPY DANCE!!
I agree with all the comments here. I'm not a student of poetry, but the emotion of this piece speaks loud and clear. Well done.
