Last weekend I went on a waterfall walk. I really wanted to climb Helvellyn but the wind speeds were too high.
Tear drops glimmering like diamonds
Creating pasterns of rivers
Criss crossing creating a quilt like effect
Soaking into the pillow
Having no idea
why the tears fall
Sometimes it’s just
a release of pent up emotions
kept bottled up for far too long
when it becomes hard to stay that way
and life becomes so overwhelming
Like an all consuming fire
left to burn for days on end
After all sometimes its best
to cry sometimes.
After the tears comes clarity
Knowing you’ll be ok in the end.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
