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 variety of emotion is worth the embrace.

  1. Hi Andi,
    Beautiful Post! You have the right idea!
    No shame in being authentic and expressing our real feelings. I am transparent about my emotions.
    Even if I am not saying my face is showing it.
    We need the down times to really fully appreciate the highs.
    Wishing you more highs than lows! Blessings!
