Who Wouldn’t Be?

Posted on May 12th, 2015

Depressed?
Yes, who wouldn’t be?
Why do you judge
these emotions
insinuating notions
of holding in that
which must be released.

That is exactly why they exist.
So go ahead and leave your words
out there to peel away truth
and box up pain inside your chest,
but know this,
as pressure builds
it yields negative forces
and uses resources
better spent on other things.

You know the truth
and I can’t make you
let it go
but I hope you won’t return
to the dung
but will continue
in the sunlight
where life can breath
deep love into your soul
and plant you by streams
of living water.
