Pain: The Palpable Force

Pain is a palpable thing.
It ooze’s, pulses out of you when you least expect it.
It exposes itself to people in those pensive moments,
When you are lost in a world of thoughts which get you nowhere,
Where you think you are all alone, but you aren’t.

Its when I see someone having such a moment I realize the real meaning of these beautiful lines I had once read.

It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their past and their present, but you’d be amazed at the tears a single smile hides.
What the person shows to the world is just one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight.
And more often then not, it is lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.

It is these moments when you need to reach out to that person.
Offer him a patient ear, or hold his hand.
Hug him tight and be there for him.
You might not be able to solve his problem, but you can definitely alleviate his pain, if only for a moment.
And that will be enough.

The truth is that the pain will pass.
Or it might not, but the intensity of it will definitely diminish.
That’s the beauty of being human.
Pain can make you or break you,
It can turn you into a brilliant human being or turn you into a monster who causes pain.
The choice of how you deal with it at the end of the day is yours.

Because the truth is..
This too, shall pass

  1. A brilliant, mature read!
    Pain is always going to be there. It is a part of life. It is how you deal with it and how you let it affect you that will define you.
    And these are my favourite words, ‘This too shall pass’

    • One of those things we have similar thoughts on eh?

      • Definitely.. but I really liked how you summarized the whole essence in such a nice way. People end up writing pages and pages and still don’t say it in a proper way…

      • 🙂
        Thank you, Swapnil Patel.
