Poetry: Today I needed to cry… But didn’t have the time

September 3, 2021


I needed to cry today, but didn’t have the time

I’d counted on my “it will be alright” to catch up with me

Several things had taken place in a brief time

I slowed my pace, but realized it wasn’t me but the circumstances

overtaking me, which had slowed me down

I noticed on my right, my shadow

Which let me realize there was still some light in my life

Because light produces shadows…


I needed to cry today, but didn’t have time

I had absorbed myself in the impermanence of life,

Life is fleeting…

We welcome the good and enjoy, accept the bad and learn

Neither lasts, so enjoy and learn

A glimpse to my left. I smile now as see “this too will pass,” going pass me as a reminder…

So I stopped and cried, not tears of sadness but of refreshing pass!
