A poem about letting it out

When you are sad,

Angry or hurt,

Unloved or depressed,

Go ahead.

Let it out.

Kick and scream,

Curse and flee.

When family


When lovers


When friends


Be torn.

Be broken.

Fall apart.

And run.

Let all your pain

Loose and wild.

Pout and shake.

Rage and lament.

Feel as though

You could have done something,


Though you know

There was nothing

To be done.

Let your eyes get glassy.

Let your tears flow freely.

Let your nose run grossly.

And when you truly feel

You've lost it all,
