Default Tears

The tears that roll down your face
could be the sign of great happiness or great sorrow
tears that could be the cause of something so beautiful
or something so heart wrenching

The cause of something beautiful
could be a fragile voice that you only hear every once in a while
a beautiful soul you only see every once in a while
an amazing sight you see once in a while

the cause of something sorrowful
could be the anguish in your heart
the load on your chest
the pain in your mind

The beauty and sorrow touch the heart and soul
they strike a vibe within you
this emotion is not something easily shared
this emotion even confuses you

As the sighs grow heavier
and the tears roll faster
you wonder if it is beauty or sorrow
or if it even both

Just a little poem I came up with on the top of my head as I sit in my room shedding tears of happiness and sorrow. Why do we cry? Is it a form of release? What are the reasons you cry? Emotions are not something to be taken lightly. We may only truly feel a certain emotion every once in a while. Happiness, love, sorrow, connection with another human or nature.

Indeed very potent and beautiful. Thx for sharing Stan!
It was impossible not to have, It's impossible not to be, It's impossible not to still ...!

What this world really needs is more artists and environmentalists!

"Its only 'here' that we lose perspective, out at the Cosmic Consciousness Level things get a lot clearer. For example, there is an actual star pattern that is traced in the shape of a Willow Tree, across the breadth of the Milky Way! And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"

Default Tears

Hey, Stanley, that was really good mate. You wear your heart on your sleeve. It is good to be able to freely express your emotions, even if it is sometimes just to yourself.

As for me expressing sadness or tears of joy, I'm afraid my upbringing and culture has taught me to suppress them. Not good for you, I know, but I am British after all! Stiff upper lip m' lad and all that. But this year has been different. I have shed more tears this year than in a very long time and all because of a certain film we like watching

Anyway, you keep at your poetry, ma tsmukan, you are a deep thinker.

Eywa ngahu,

Stan, you have a unique ability to communicate and touch others. I was moved by this poem and I know others were as well. These emotions, use them. Don't let this experience go to waste; pour your heart into something...

That was so beautiful.

Caveman and Alan are right. To be able to express such pure, raw emotion, right from the soul, is a gift. Don't let it go to waste.

The Dreamer's Manifesto

Mike Malloy, a voice of reason in a world gone mad.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." - Inception

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." - Tyler Durden
