Grief Poem by londiwe buthelezi

Grief

Rating: 4.7


It rips through your body.
Grazing, raking, shaving away all the
protective layers you put up all those years before.
layers you used to cover all the pain
you couldn't possibly show to others.
Grief exposes you.
shows everyone what you really are like inside.
raw and helpless...

Yes it does londiwe, but it's for the best if you let it out, let it show... Andrew 10

No doubt about it. When we grieve openly in public, we are exposing our emotions....in the right company...this can be a very cathartic feeling. Hugs, Dee

Like putting a weight on our lives. Though it eats away our energies, because of the strength of it's feelings generated.
