Let Sadness In

Let sadness
transform you,
trickle down from
your head to your toes.
Let it widen your chest
and raise your heart.
Let sadness dance
in your veins,
a slow dance,
a deliberate dance.
Open the window,
let it sit for awhile.
Let it soak in your bones,
let it ravage you.
It will travel through 
the chambers of your heart
and it will leave you weak at the knees
like a gentle lover.
It will dissolve like fog at daybreak 
over the harbor.
You will grow
from the heartache,
you will weather the storm.
You will survive,
you will find joy.


  1. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Hard earned I'm sure :)

  2. Thank you for this inspiration

  3. Yes. One of my favorite poems by you, Ayala. xo

  4. Yes, "you will grow from the heartache"......grow strong and endure. Beautiful and wise.

  5. This is filled with hope, Ayala. We all do find ways of getting through those times of sadness...fortunately.

  6. Love this Ayala--we do manage to find our way I think--

  7. I love the tenderness in this poem ❤️ Beautifully penned.

  8. We will indeed survive and find joy ~ Love this share Ayala ~

  9. I love the idea of letting sadness run its course... in order to find joy on the other side.

  10. You understand the potential beauty that sadness can bring forth when lived fully...the lesson of a lifetime. Awe-inspiring.

  11. Great to be back here again Ayala and what a strong and beautiful piece that really resonated with me - thank you and have a wonderful Christmas, my friend... Let sadness transform you... Indeed!

  12. I think sadness can be a good and solid foundation to build on... once it was believed that melancholy was the noblest of emotions. Still wishing you joy

  13. Sadness can definitely transform us and can add dimension and perspective when we look out into the world once we let it pass though. Hopefully joy comes out the other side.

  14. We need sadness as much as we need joy. Maybe more :)
    Wonderful writing.
