Made a cryptic quote on the struggles of chronic pain


"In the depths of shadows, silent battles unfold, where pain's whispers echo, unseen and untold. Each step, a maze of concealed strife, revealing the strength found in the hidden life."

  • Macdonald Tembo

"This cryptic quote reflects the profound and hidden challenges that come with chronic pain. It illustrates the struggles that are often unseen and unspoken, as pain silently echoes in the shadows. The mention of a maze represents the complex journey of navigating through pain, where each step can feel like an intricate puzzle. Despite the difficulties, the quote suggests that hidden within this hidden life of pain lies strength and resilience, waiting to be discovered and embraced."

    I do like this very much @Macdee73

    It brought to mind another favourite by the Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

    "Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

    Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its

    heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

    And could you keep your heart in wonder at the

    daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem

    less wondrous than your joy;'

    Wow I never came across this one. So 70 years after author dies copyright won't apply anymore! Learning never ends

    Thank I've added this one to my list of quotes
