The pain

in my shoes.

Is not your pain.

But my pain.

Not other people pain.

It is like a needle

In my shoes.

Have you had pain.

Have you lost someone.

Who is that someone.

What does it mean to you.

Have you been in pain.

Suffered discrimination.

Do you know pain.

Or you heard about pain.

If you don’t know pain.

Then no needle

in your shoes.

I have needle

A big needle in my shoes .

Took off my shoes.

There is pain.

Put on my shoes.

There is pain.

Woke up in pain.

Then only then will

You understand my pain.

I woke in pain but

Cannot remove the pain.

Have a penetrated wound.

With excruciating pain.

Can time heal me.

I hope so.

Have the lockdown


Worsen my pain.

It became unbearable.

Because nowhere to go.

To ease my pain.

Domestic violence on

The rise.

Creating more vulnerable

People to be in pain.

I ask again do you know pain.
