Self, forgive me for I know that I have cried

It has been 2 days since my last breakdown

The tears consume
Fear overwhelms.
I feel pain that is not mine.
The weight of the sadness I can not share.

Self, stop! I am still crying.

It has been no time since my last breakdown.

It was not my last
It is my current.
The pain is all mine.
I do not want to share the guilt

Self, keep on

These tears are a comfort
This fear is inevitable
The pain will linger on.
The sadness is mine to own.

Self, embrace it all

It is proof that you can feel.
