I ran across this poem tonight which I wrote many years ago. I thought I’d share it with you even though I may have already. Emotions are a gift from God. They should be pure and not riddled with drama. Emotions are a special means of relating to others.


Is there shame in expressing sadness, heartache, or pain,
To look through the sun and only see rain,
Is it absurd of me to feel such emotions,
Must I drink from the well of those “feel good” potions?

My feelings are genuine and very real to me,
Please don’t condemn because you can’t see,
That the positive and negative, together compose,
The very essence of people, with their highs and their lows.

Perpetual happiness is wrong to expect,
When a heart is so broken; emotions reflect,
As God in the beginning blessed all of mankind,
With many emotions, at His will He designed.

So cherish and marvel at this wonderful gift,
Knowing life isn’t always joyful and bliss,
While lifting a sad soul to a happier place,
Know that variety of emotion is worth the embrace.

            1. Poems come from the deepest part of me. Sometimes they are really hard to retrieve. There’s typically a great amount of emotion attached. I do have a very long poem that I’d like to turn into a story. A love story. I also think it would make a great movie.

              1. I think that’s why I’m so weird about my poetry. It’s very personal but I want people to read and enjoy. But I get a couple likes and that to me makes me think I’m wasting my time.

                I’m very interested in reading!

                1. You are not wasting your time. I don’t get a lot of likes either but I have people tell me personally how much they enjoy reading my blogs. You NEVER know who you are reaching. No worries…😊

                  1. I know it’s very subjective. And I would love to share more of my sensual stuff. It’s not smutty. I just feel weird showing that side of me. I have so much of it lol!!

                    You are an awesome writer! Well spoken from the heart of a mom and a woman.

                    1. Thank you!
                      King Solomon wrote a very beautiful, but sensual book in the Bible. You just need to be mindful that it doesn’t cause another to stumble. 🙂

                    2. If you do not know, then do not do it. Listen to that inner part of you. It’s usually correct. That is in all situations in life. We all need to listen to that voice inside.

                    3. Yes ma’am. So I’m not gonna do it. In all actuality, I really feel like I should just delete everything.


                    4. I did post one. If you can please tell me what you think. And be brutally honest!


                    5. Ok. Women are just very inspirational. I’ve spent almost 20 years with one lol! I can just write almost endlessly about feminine. But I don’t want to be weird.

                    6. Well, just write and then put it aside before posting. Let it sit for a few days and then come back to it. Get your wife’s opinion too. 🙂

                    7. She doesn’t know I have a poetry blog. It was something I just thought of and took a vote on with my followers. They said yes and then nobody paid it any attention.


                    8. And I feel like something isn’t right or they’re just hitting like and moving on.


                    9. Lots of people read through many blogs at a time. Even though they enjoy it, they are reading other blogs too. And probably not responding. It’s all good. No worries

                    10. I’m sorry. I don’t know what to say. I do not get many likes or comments, but you know what…I am writing my story with every blog. And one day when I’m gone, my kids can go back snd read my stuff. They will be able to get advice from me. They will know me even better snd they can share me with their kids. I will live on through my writing.

                    11. I also have a blog where I’m going to share my testimony. Super personal. And all I have worried about lately is this poetry blog.
