Allow me my sadness

Allow me my sadness.

Life is hard. Life is rough. Life is tender.

And life is beautiful, magical, wonderful.

But allow me my sadness.

I am allowed to feel.

I am allowed to feel into the most tender places.

I am allowed to feel.

I am allowed to miss you.

I am allowed to feel frustrated by life.

I am allowed to ache.

I am dynamic.

I am joy, and sadness, and pain, and anger.

Allow me all of it.

Don’t take it away from me.

Don’t act like everything is ok.

It is not.

Life hurts.

Life is hard.

And life is beautiful, magical, wonderful.

But I am dynamic.

I am all of it.

And I am allowed my pain.

I am allowed my sadness.

I am allowed to miss you.

And I don’t have to make it all better.

I can let the tears fall.

I can let them cleanse me.

I can be with what is.

I can be with exactly how I feel now.

Because I feel.

I feel all of it.

And life is hard. Life is tough. Life is tender.

But life is oh so beautiful.
