Ok, so we are feeling hurt and disappointed
Smile has come over to give me strength
But Tears is too overwhelmed and decides to visit the same time
I look funny, I’m trying to smile, cry and look strong at the same time
But Tears has a mind of its own
It will threaten to spill in front of everyone
But once I am alone it either vanishes or it floods my pillow and bedsheet.
The days I hold my tears back, others call me strong but I’m withering inside
And the days I let them flow, I’m a baby but after the tears dry I am deep asleep
Tears can be exhausting, draining — but they also release all the pent up emotions
I feel free. I feel more like the happy go lucky me.
Despite all, its my tears who know my fears, my dreams
They know the people who made me happy and those who made me stronger
When I am all alone, their warmth is the only consolation I have.
We all have our share of tears
But sometimes just accepting them can make us more resilient.
And the times I am so happy or laughing out loud
Tears come and visit me which fills me with gratitude for those moments!!
Mind your wings
