The Blessing of Sadness – Jessica Rips

 
 
Sadness is a curse
 
And yet not
 
 
Sadness can be torture at times
 
And we wallow in our own despair
 
 
Sadness cripples us
 
It breaks our emotions
 
Limb by limb
 
 
Sadness consumes us
 
Like a fire to a match it burns us
 
 
But does it destroy us?
 
It can
 
But
 
We can be stronger
 
 
Sadness can be defeated
 
With the help of others
 
We
 
   Will
 
Prevail
 
 
Sadness can teach
 
 
Experiences following loss and sorrow
 
Teach us to
 
Be
 
An even better person than we were already
 
 
And in the end
 
When it has come to pass
 
 
Sadness is a blessing
 
And with help
 
We
 
Shall
 
Overcome
