What I Know

I think we really do need it
All of it
All of the pain
All of the heartache
and all of the
garbage that comes with it.

And I won’t say it makes us stronger
I don’t know if it does.
I don’t really know
anything at all.

But I do think…

I do think it makes us…
Not better…
Just, more.
More than what’d we be
content with the
of our day to day.

I think that it shapes us.
The tears carve our faces
and morph our souls
like rivers eroding
the banks of the earth.

And when I sit alone
Crying because I just don’t know
how to feel
about anything
or anyone

I let it all go.

In words
In sobs
In thoughts

For better or for worse
It makes me
