I guess sometimes you have to shed huge tears
So that you appreciate the tears of joy that much more.
I guess sometimes you have to scream crazy loud
So that your nice voice rings sweeter.
I guess sometimes you have to say things you don’t mean
So that the ones you do mean hold more meaning.
I guess sometimes your heart has to feel broken
So that you realize the happiness when it sings.
I guess sometimes you have to lose your patience
So that when you find it, you hold onto it tighter.
I guess sometimes you have to have an angry side
So that your pleasant side makes more of a statement.
I guess sometimes you have to feel lost
So that being found is that much more comforting.
I guess sometimes you have to feel like you have no one
So that when your someone is there, their arms wrap warmer.
I hope that there are all these “sometimes”
Or else today was really for nothing.
Yes, I had one of “those” days. One of those days that is thrown at us so that we appreciate the better days. One of those days where my kids decided they had been giving me too much of a good thing. One of those days where I had to EARN my huge salary. One of those days where I’m really thankful I have this place. This place where I can shed my tears and my words… and feel better tomorrow. Thanks for that.
