Hump, pack-hunched with weight
of desire, to nose-bag, roped; yoke-bruised
shoulders, a-groan between shafts
of dream and reality but will shod
and water in-stored
for a rainy day, the camel of patience, kicks

start along the unwalked way, waylaid, each
new day with angry glow of parched patch
of sand. With knees so swollen, aching
with so much kneeling,
on the ordeal strewn desert of life.
Heat-stroke struck, sweat soaked, stoic

at heart, the beast, lumbers, plodding
through sand dunes, amidst sand storms,
panting. It drags itself limpingly, to halt
at the oasis of all emotions-soul's pleasure
that can be when it's stark against
the horrible hurt that life inflicts.

An interesting analogy - of patient suffering as likened to the camel; and there is a rhythm that moves the poem along.
