    sometimes, before i put my sadness in bottles
    i wear it
    it's plain to see
    even if i'm smiling...

    having to make change usually brings it on
    death
    broken heart
    having to leave someone(s) i love
    and today i'm sad

    i wore my sadness but hid inside a book
    i wore my sadness but acted silly with my baby girls
    i wore my sadness but made dinner anyway
    i wore my sadnes and prayed with my husband

    and when i wake up in the morning
    i'm gonna put my sadness away
    because i've got to trust God
    and keep movin' on.

    as with you, my sistah...
    i wear my sadness, obscurely...
    that none may see...
    the depths of my pain...
    again and again...
    but hope came to visit one day and decided to stay...
    like you, i pray...
    everyday...
    that tomorrow WILL BE...
    beyond that, we will see.

    what sadness brings me.

    You wore your sadness inside to hide it and did not let it wear you. Admirable for sure. All for your family I think, but maybe they would want you to share?

    my spirit

    is uplifted...my soul is fed...your testimony is nothing but a blessing for me. You've ministered in a mighty way with this peace. (and some gifts God just lets run rampant in the fam-blee) :)

    Teach! :heart:
