a goddess cries
the goddess cries for innocent lives
sadness is reactive like pesky free radicals
attacking stable molecules, stealing electrons
& wreaking havoc in living cells.
sadness happens when circumstances are sad;
like when yr child is hurting & the thought
squeezes costive tears out of eyes loath to cry.
fear not, strong one – embrace a moment of
weakness; hold it, relish it. soon, a single
thought will come jim dandy to the rescue;
a thought rotund with the joy of who u are
can push u thru the pain, elevate yr mood,
& let u choose once more to be happy.
