Crying Helps

You can cry if you need to, sky;
you can cry if you need to.
I saw your lighting,
and I heard your thunder;
I know you are upset.

I will come out to sing for you,
and dance for you,
stretch my hands to you,
until you stop.
You can shed your tears into my palms.

I won’t hide from you;
you can’t always be strong.
I’ll listen to you,
and say nice words to you;
I won’t go till I see your sun.

Rise Like a Phoenix

Cry if you need to,
so you can laugh.
Bleed if you need to,
so you can heal.
Destroy if you need to,
so you can (re)build.
Let certain things die
if they need to,
so you can live.

Tears

Tears are filtered blood from our hearts,
made clear they can flow easily;
our hearts bleed through our eyes.

Let some tears dry on their own;
they won’t hurt your cheeks.
Let them run through
to create a path on your face,
and in the forest of your thoughts.

Fight for Your Life

Picking your life back up
and putting the broken pieces together
isn’t as easy as they make it seem.
There would be cuts
and there would be pain.
There would be tears to dry;
there would be stains.

But you will heal.
You will heal nicely
when the fight is over.
