UNWELCOME EMOTIONS

February 10, 2019

 

I’m still learning a lot about the new me

 

These new emotions I carry around are hard to keep track of

 

The old me says to be embarrassed of them

 

To hide them.

 

Not tell

 

Act ok and things will feel better

 

But they burrow inside and build homes

 

They don’t come and pass

 

If I don’t acknowledge them I’ll feel trapped within a spiral of uncertainty

 

But bringing them to the surface

 

Showing those I love

 

That will bring freedom and peace 

 

That will show acceptance and new ground to now stand on

 

I am strong within my tears

 

Within the anxiety that grips me in those “not a big deal” circumstances 

 

It’s a part of my story to tell now

 

These emotions that can haunt me

 

But as I tell them they are welcome and that I have nothing to hide

 

Well then that is when I feel ok to breathe 

 

There is nothing “wrong with me”

 

Though I tell myself that sometimes

 

I am not “difficult”

 

Though my inclination to be easy makes me fit the description 

 

I am walking with grief 

 

I am walking with a broken heart 

 

I am without my baby girl and my heart reminds me so…
