Sad

Sadness is shy.
She bites at our hearts
and tugs at our minds.
Sadness stops us
and makes us feel.

Our blood bursts with sadness.
Makes us fall within our essence.
Sadness is the seed
in the fertile soil
that grows the flower happiness.

Sadness the mirror.
Sadness the reflection
of our faces in the water.
Sadness makes us dance alone.
She makes us build emotional muscle.

Sadness gives us gumption.
Sadness makes us have courage.
She feeds our minds with memories and dreams.
Sadness creates tension for change,
and urges us to look within.

Sadness massages our hearts
and makes them grow stronger.
Sadness is our teacher,
the precursor of self-awareness,
the inspiration behind our art.

Sadness is the friend of reflection,
Sadness the light in the dark,
The shadow to the sun.
Sadness now is part of our happiness then.
Sadness knows nature loves to hide.

The more we love,
The more we miss,
The more we cry when it goes.
Sadness is the mistress of vulnerability,
The guardian of our sensitivity,
A companion to our bliss.

Sadness links us to others,
Sadness enables us to feel compassion,
Sadness is an empty space,
Sadness is beautiful,
Sadness makes us human.
