I was in pain from my arm the other night and feeling quite low, so I took advantage of my melancholy to compose this work and this poem. FYI, I am not this melancholy about life, just used my low spirits to be creative.

LAST NIGHT I CRIED

Last night I cried…
I cried for myself and how down I was feeling, and for everyone else that shouldn’t, but can’t, help feeling so low
I cried for not being able to understand myself and not knowing how to make it all better
I cried for the friends I have lost because they can’t understand, and everyone else going through the same struggles
I cried for my mother and father and how much I miss them, and for everyone else missing loved ones too
I cried for my brother and family, and everyone else that has or is battling dementia and its effects
I cried for my friend battling cancer and everyone else battling this dreadful disease
I cried for everyone that has suffered both mental and physical abuse from their fellow humans
I cried for the elderly and infirm that are doing it really hard these days
I cried for all the animals that are suffering because of neglect and abuse from humans
I cried for the animals that are facing extinction because of the greed and destruction caused by humans
I cried for our planet and what we are doing to it
I cried because there is nothing I can do as an individual to right any of this……..

This morning I know…
I know that these feelings will pass and pray that all other sufferers know this too
I know that I still don’t know how I can get over this and make it all better, and even if that is at all possible
I know there are people that can never understand, and that I and others will continue to lose friendships because of this
I know that the pain of losing loved ones will continue to hurt for the rest of my life and that this is normal
I know sickness and disease are a part of life, and that it will continue to sadden me
I know the cruelty of others will always be a part of life, and that it will continue to sadden me
I know that the greed of others will always cause havoc and destruction to other people, animals and our planet, and this will continue to sadden me

This morning I cried again…
I cried for I wonder if I am alone in my thinking
I cried for the people that simply don’t care
I cried for the people that simply don’t get it
I cried for the people who could and can help, and won’t and don’t
I cried for our children and their children and their children’s children

This morning I was in wonder…
I was in wonder about how there are some wonderful people out there that ARE doing something
I was in wonder about how there are some wonderful people out there that ARE caring
I was in wonder about how there are some wonderful people out there that ARE helping
I was in wonder about how there are some wonderful people out there that ARE still my friends
And then I cried again…
