sorrow is such a blessing

if sorrow is ever
lost to the world
it will be the end
of us all
although it is
a great burden
to bear
sorrow nourishes
humanity
and brings
god’s holy water
to earth
so we all
may drink
our fill

do not turn away
from sorrow
but open fully
and die
into it
it will melt
even the
toughest
prison bars
the-rower
