Life can be described as an avalanche of unexpected tears. These may arrive as soft teardrops or unyielding sobbing. There is simply no way around tearful emotions for they constantly simmer within the heart. From the most passionate of lovers to the coldest of cold hearts, tears can be the tie that binds or become the final straw. They may appear within a fleeting moment or build up over a period of time.
From a surprise reaction, a past recollection, a new beginning or an anticipated, as well as unintended, ending, tears can swell so emotively they become hotter than a smoldering cauldron. These are the times when we feel life has thrown a curve that we simply don’t understand. Because of the lack of understanding, emotions can quickly turn to anger. As a result, anger becomes the knife that severs.
Sometimes there is just a need to cry. Let the tears flow for they are the dewdrops of an early morn or the pouring summer rain that cleanse, nourish and refurbish the human soul.
What is life as you see it…
Is it a loving embrace
Or a solitary place?
Does it reflect a sense of devotion
Or is it filled with senseless emotion?
Are there moments of unchangeable dread
Or have you solidified your life’s thread?
How do you greet the morning…
Is it with a gentle smile upon a happy face
Or a frown wishing you were in a different place?
Do you bring sunshine to a rainy day
Or does the rain take the sunshine away?
Are there thoughtful images of someone dear
Or do remembrances of sadness appear?
What awaits you at the close of day…
Is it time with caring family
Or just another anomaly?
Does sunset bring an admiring, restful glow
Or do thoughts detail more than you need to know?
Are you with friends ready to make merry
Or are you alone and solitary?
Life IS as you see it…
As life’s proceedings command a new-found way
Greet each morning as the dawn of a new day
If you are dangling on the edge
Come back with a fresh, new life’s pledge
Be a sister, brother, lover or friend
Cherish each moment to the bitter end
Make the most of it!
Life is filled with countless challenges to endure
Times of uncertainty, times when you are sure
While tears may flow like falling rain
Let them cleanse easing any pain
Within the shadows learn to cope
Keep faith alive as well as hope
