…..Been Angry At Your Own Tears

Have you ever…

…..been stunned by your own lack of compassion.

…..screamed when you couldn’t bear the silence.

…..broken, under the weight of endless sound.

…..felt encouraged when you anticipated critique.

…..laughed while in the depth of grief and sorrow.

…..been angry at your own tears.

…..found surprise in the ordinary,

…..or disappointment when expecting extraordinary.

…..had friendship rejected.

…..walked out of a moment before it could change your life.

…..seen beauty in a horrible human being,

…..seen horrible in a beautiful human being.

…..stood in the sunshine of a glorious day and found no glory in it.

…..stood in a deluge and reveled in the excitement of it.

…..been lost right where you are.

…..sought answers and found none.

…..gave up hope and found resolution.

  1. Many times. Angry at tears because it seems silly that they were shed in the first place. It wasn’t silly, it was real at the time.

    I love your poem. Your title stands out. ❀


    • Thank you 1J1. It was the part that struck the strongest cord with me, though they all did. The tears that to others look like weakness or inability to ‘control’ one’s self….I’ve come to learn they are part of whatever passion it is I’m feeling at the moment. ❀


  2. It’s surprising how this stuff runs in our minds even though we’re all so different on the exterior…. that’s what makes us all “human” I guess ? πŸ€”πŸ€“πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ Great work here !πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
