Poems about Sadness

Poems about Being Sad

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.

    The tulips are too excitable, it is winter here.

    I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly
    As the light lies on these white walls, this bed, these hands.
