This tide of grief I hide inside of me

Posted by Hiddenhurt on November 14, 2016, at 12:26:36

This tide of grief I hide inside of me,
Because too-sad people in society
Are like wilting flowers in a bouquet:
They spoil appearances, and are wished away.

I try to be upright and dutiful,
But it hurts me that one is deemed unbeautiful
When sick and in pain. If the evening sky
Can be both dark and lovely, why not I?

For pain grows fast in darkness, and when apart
Fear metastasizes. (Why must the heart
Be such a skittish mouse?) So close to home
And yet so misunderstood, and so alone.

Hiddenhurt,
Let not your heart be troubled. If you believe in the darkness of pain, then believe in the light of life. If you believe in the wilting of the flowers, you can believe in the blooming of the flowers kissed by the Sun.
Sing a new song. Return to the green fields that you used to know. Gone will be the dark clouds and the cold winds and there will be the water of life to make you come out of the darkness into a marvelous light to have sadness replaced with joy, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
Lou

I found this while driving to work this morning, and had my phone read it out loud to me and it was just what I needed to hear. I replayed it four times. I'm severely depressed and afraid to miss work. This strengthened and encouraged me. Thank you, Lou! :)
