On processing pain

… Because it’s poetry Thursday.

Though I’d not particularly call myself a poet, I do love poetry. My favorite poet is Pierre Jeanty and I absolutely love his collection of works, Watering your soil.

Find below beautiful poetry from that collection. One of my favorites from Pierre.


Even in the toughest seasons,
you must learn to spring back onto your feet on your own,
but you must also give room for the people who deserve to hear your silent cries .
Allow  them to  be there, don’t  fall in the  shadow of assumptions  and  believe they don’t  care. 

The people who love us, care for our well being; it’s the easiest thing for us to forget.

In learning who you are ,
you become unwilling to be taught who you need to be by people who aren’t you.
