A Song of Mea Culpa

Posted: November 6, 2013 in Puisi

“It’s better to keep grief inside.

Grief inside works like bees or ants, building curious and perfect structures, complicating you.

Grief outside means you want something from someone, and chances are good you won’t get it.” -Hamann

Well, I am not trying to get anything here, so I do this ‘grief outside’.

These mumble jumble craps need to go somewhere, and writing it down is still a very best way to do it.

“And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows)
you will be content that you have known me.
You will always be my friend.
You will want to laugh with me.
And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure . . .
And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them,
‘Yes, the stars always make me laugh!’
And they will think you are crazy.
It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you…”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,
and your heart will be badly broken,
and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved.

But this is also the good news.
They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up.
And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold,
but you learn to dance with the limp.”
― Anne Lamott
