When Sadness Reveals

Our emotions run

like an

underground current

which we are

often unaware.

Happiness

we welcome,

maybe

take for granted.

Who chooses to feel sad?

It is uncomfortable.

Deep sadness

can make us feel tired.

Sadness can be a gift.

It can show us

what really matters

to us.

I am grateful

when sadness

brings tears,

surfacing

unrecognized emotions.

Occasionally

tears

become a

sob

letting me know how much

sorrow about

someone or something really

has been waiting

to surface.

I am

usually lightened

with the release

of the buried

sadness.
