How many times were you told not to cry?
How many times were you judged
As weak, wrong or emotional for crying?
Since when were you first taught that
Getting ‘emotional’ was wrong?
How much of your life have you
Shut down and buried your feelings
At all costs to the level where
You are no longer conscious of them?
How many times have you told yourself
‘I don’t know’ when asked:
‘How are you feeling?’
As the result of it?
How much of your life have you had
A hard time feeling a certain emotion
Even when you wanted to feel it?
Does it all feel heavy for you?
Does it all drag you down
And wither your soul?
Everywhere you bought
Expressing how you felt
Showing your emotions
Shedding your tears
As wrongness and weakness
From your father, mother, loved ones,
Authority figures, generations, ancestors,
Society, culture, country,
And everyone else around you
As real, true and yours when it wasn’t,
And everything you have done
To cut off your own awareness
To suppress your own being
To close down your own heart
To turn off your very humanness
With your own feelings and emotions
To be everyone else
Other than YOU
In order to survive,
Everything that is, would you like to
Uncreate, delete, destroy and
Return it all to senders please?
Would you like to receive that
It is safe and possible for you
To have your heart wide open
To feel deeply however you feel
To express yourself freely
To roar your voice eloquently
That includes shedding your tears
To have and be the softness
Of a gigantic loving heart
That you truly be?
Your tears are the warmth of your caring
Your tears are the diamonds of your heart
Your tears are the pearls of your soul
Your tears are the gifts of your being
Your tears are the liberation of your aliveness
Your tears are the sacredness of
All the colors of the rainbow
For your magnificent light
To dance, flow and shine through
With and as your infinite freedom
With and as your infinite wisdom
With and as your infinite possibilities
With and as your magic and miracles
With and as your joy and laughter
With and as your bliss and ectasy
With and as God’s golden spark
With and as God’s warrior of greatness
That you are born to be
You got this . One step at a time.
