Duridhan

While shuttling between
the ache and the agony,
a child zips his pains
in a bag of silence.
He keeps his poverty
beside a peacock feather
in his text-book.

Wanting the modern feathers
and the wings of a bike,
the young man sits drooping
in a friendless nest.
He creeps like a worm
along the shelves in a library
in search of his shelter.

The man marries
a bucolic beauty, who
burns like a kerosene lamp
in his dark kitchen.
Noble births grow in poverty
as the chaff smolders.
A new wasp stings him daily.

My hero Duridhan still stands,
now as a snowy statue,
on the pedestal of hardships.
But that remnants – 
a pair of stiffened arms
and an undaunted heart-
are fit to smile at any challenge.

    The emotions are very rich here Fabiyas, you show the vagary of perception, as viewed from the 'inside' and an idea of the external forces and input that hinders a life. Well done indeed..' I saw an old comment on a write of mine from before, I can't remember if I replied or not, hope you are well Joe..'

    Fab - Duridhan has me puzzled. Not sure what it represents even though I googled it. Doesn't matter one iota given the beauty of your sad words. Very intriguing nonetheless and a pleasure to read. love, Kathy
