I cried today
I cried yesterday
I could not stem the tears
for they had been waiting years
locked somewhere deep inside
somehow they found a way
to have their say
they were not bitter
was there pain in the tears that rained
down my cheeks, one by one
leaving tear stains that betrayed
the sadness in my heart
I recognized the pain,
what I don’t understand is why…
why now ………
emotions, they are a way for the body to express feelings that have been locked away
we can hide from our”selves” for only so long, then when least expected, someone, or something touches the right button, and a door swings open.
the raw emotion of another time, place or experience comes to life and you are open and vulnerable to the lesson (challenge) you didn’t deal with before.
In life, we face a new day, every day, each one is unique and special, no two are the same, and no two people are alike.
It is when you admit to, and claim the pain, sadness, grief or sense of loss, that you finally regain a footing to understanding.
… we cope much better when have friends and loved ones who care, and lend support when we falter, they can’t respond to us though .. if we are silent about what is happening to us.
Crying is healing and revitalizing, it is part of life.
