Feeling Blue Poem by Susan Williams

Feeling Blue

Rating: 4.9


.
you say we should shake it off
you say get over it
you say it's not good for us
you say it makes a bad situation worse
.
I think we should enjoy the mood
what's wrong with feeling blue
gives us time to be melancholy
and think sad soulful thoughts
.
tomorrow we can dance in the rain
but today we can watch it rain
and trace its lonely tears
down our windowpane
.

A beautiful poem with a meaningful message. There is always a time for everything. Happiness and sadness have their own time. And sometimes happiness could spring from sadness. A marvelous piece of art that will find its home in the hearts of many readers. Very well composed and conveyed.10 and on to my Poem List.

This poem is perfection, Susan. Yes, one of our social problems is that so many people, mostly professionals, seem to think feeling down is a problem. These are the same people who tend to say that 'you're not what you feel." Irony? This goes to myfavourites!

Thank you, Mj, , , , it seems odd to me to be told we should ignore our feelings and try to erase them from our set of behaviors/emotions... we feel them for a reason and we should explore them, embrace them or at least understand them before banishing them to the corner! Thank you for faving it! ! ! !
