Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘To The God of Pain’-An Analytical Study

The poem “To The God of Pain” by Sarojini Naidu expresses the speaker’s weariness and longing for release from the grip of suffering.

The speaker in the poem ‘To The God of Pain’ addresses the God of Pain, describing their unwillingness to continue serving as a priestess in the god’s cruel temple. They have been bound to this painful worship, enduring suffering in their weary body and mind. The speaker expresses their fatigue, having carried out the god’s relentless rituals through many difficult years, marked by sad days and sleepless nights.

The speaker highlights the sacrifices they have made for the god of Pain. Instead of offering traditional offerings like balm, milk, or rice, they have given their own soul as a sacrifice. They have offered the essence of their youth’s desires, the vitality of their life, and the dreams and hopes that were like precious jewels and the light of dawn.

Having given everything they had, the speaker declares that they have nothing more to offer. All that belonged to them has been laid as a forced tribute at the god’s altar. The speaker pleads to be allowed to depart, as their soul is wrung with anguish. They have exhausted their prayers and yearn for release. They ask for permission to find solace in the embrace of sleep, seeking respite in the shadows of oblivion.

After all, “To The God of Pain” expresses the speaker’s exhaustion and desire to be free from the relentless suffering they have endured. The poem depicts a plea for release from the burdens of pain and a yearning for a peaceful rest. 0 0 0.
