x..... A little sadness


Reflecting on my life at the end of the week
A tear leaves my eye and caresses my cheek
My ego wants to force a smile, but my soul doesn’t feel the need

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Actually too many people tend to be afraid of sadness
Sadness is quite a normal feeling.
It can be all encompassing and devastating
And that is something to be afraid of
But our daily small sadnesses,
we should be living through them without too much worry
If we store our daily small sadnessess
without really living through the feelings,
they may come back to us in much bigger form

    Your poet's note is spot on! Without sadness we would not know the wonderfulness of feeling happy! A good cry can also be very cleansing! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful! We are not always happy and peaceful though our ego, false self, may pretend at times. But if we accept 'suchness' of the situation at hand, let it be sorrow or pain, it gives tremendous peace and serenity.We need to accept the present moment as it is.
    Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
