Poems about Sadness

Sad Poetry

Poetry about sadness. Feeling sad is no crime although the world might wish you to think so. All the feelings in the world never did anybody any harm. It is our feelings that make us human and connect us to the rest of humanity. When you feel sad, it is important to give yourself permission to feel the sadness. Share your feelings with someone who has the sensitivity to give you the space to let the feeling fully be felt. Only then can you begin to let go.

Don't let the hope fade away.
You are gonna be special
In someone's life.
If not today...some other day.

To a place I don't know,
Everything's moving with no place to go.
I feel so alone and scared.
