Deep knowing numbness not quite fully present
Anger disappointment often resentment
It comes from feeling what is not right
Longing the possible you won’t have tonight
What comes to the surface beyond any anger
What’s deeper longer truer stronger
Beneath the rage and cauldron of feeling
Deep disappointment sending you reeling
The vision you had is mostly missing
That future envisioned you would beg to be kissing
The difference between what you thought you had
That is the chasm making you sad
How do you cure it fix it and heal
First you acknowledge accept and reveal
Be gentle and salve it caress it with love
In time you’ll declare you have risen above
Let it instruct and teach its deep lessons
Honor the learnings as treasured possessions
Use the experience to guide you and others
Share the wisdom acquired with sisters and brothers
Embrace the perspective “it’s not about only you”
The learning’s for others help carry them through
It’s god’s way of teaching a bigger plan
Transmute resolve sadness for all who you can
I hope you embrace what I’m talking about
One day awake knowing smiles replaced your pout
See all the value in the gift of your knowing
Then foster that wisdom in your teaching and growing
What are the lessons you have taken from your greatest sadness and disappointment?
How have you used them?
How have you transmitted them to others?
What was their benefit?
What makes them profound?
