‘I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019’
For this round I am challenging myself to writing acrostic poems.
Day 7 is the last day of the challenge and today's prompt is Grief
G - Giving yourself permission that sorrow exists
R - Releasing tears is cathartic. Let them flow.
I - Intense sorrow and a feeling of desolation
E - Experiencing deep pain at the loss of a loved one
F - Feeling it deep in your heart for without feeling there can be no overcoming
Grief is an emotion that all of us go through at points in our life. If we did not feel grief, we would not be human. Grieving is a releasing of emotions of great loss and forlornness. But grieving is necessary to move forward in life. We never entirely get over that loss but we learn to move on because life goes on.
Anne Lamott has summed this up very well:
“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.”
I have watched many people deal with grief in different ways. Grief usually hits me a few days after the event and at that time I like to sit quietly, acknowledge my loss, feel the sadness (sometimes this can take a few days) and then remember the good times.
