There is something about poetry that no words can explain but definitely strikes the heart. You not only get to know the author with the kind of genre it has, but you also get to know yourself as you read. Let me share with a mini throwback since it’s Thursday (hello #ThrowbackThursday). One of the classes I would look forward to besides math would be reading and writing. In my early teens, I’ve got a thing on novels. I would purchase ones that would have this huge impact in me that I wouldn’t get over it for at least 2 weeks. I would really save up since ebooks were not available at that time yet. Everytime we would have homeworks on constructing stories or poems, I would always receive a high mark. Oh those days. Just the other day I finished “Love and Misadventure” and yesterday this. There are a lot of poems in this book that captured my heart and hopefully I would be able to incorporate them in my upcoming posts but this particular one made a stand.
BROKEN HEARTS I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts. You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly. Or perhaps you began losing pieces of them until one day, there was nothing left. You may have known them all your life or you may have barely known them at all. Either way, it is irrelevant — you cannot control he depth of a wound another inflicts upon you. Which is why I am not here to tell you tomorrow will be a new day. That the sun will go on shining. Or there are plenty of fish in the sea. What I will tell you is this;it’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary — because it makes you so much human. And though I can’t promise it will get better any time soon, I can tell you that it will — eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time that you need.
