Sad Poems

Poems About Unhappiness

These are poems about sadness in all its varied forms. There is much sadness in the world and many reasons to be sad. Sadness is a difficult feeling to cope with. Often, it is caused by traumatic events or depression. The melancholy caused by deep sadness might begin to interfere with your day to day life, leaving you feeling unmotivated and even worthless. Expressing such feelings in writing, especially through poems will not only help you to cope, it can actually help you to heal emotionally. Sit down, find a pencil and paper, and pour your heart out onto the page. You are likely to find that the result is a feeling of calmness and relief.
