WHEN EMOTIONS CANNOT SHOW…

WHEN EMOTIONS CANNOT SHOW…

 

When he was younger in times like these,

Emotion wasn’t allowed…

Truth is that he often stayed on his knees

And by his elders was cowed.

He’d daydream emotional stories at night,

Got in trouble for not enough sleep….

Wasn’t allowed to have anger in sight

But could, in bed, have a weep.

Recently things have come to a fore,

Giving up crutches again…

Started daydreaming for solace once more

Feeling like he’d lost a friend.

He’s not given up praying to his God,

Still finds the grace to push on…

Struggling to take proper care of himself

‘Til his bright raiment is on!
