Growing Pains


I feel it.
Sometimes it’s intense.
An overwhelming feeling of sadness.
A heaviness.
Mind restless with thoughts and fears.
I’ve borne it before, so it doesn’t swallow me.
I only have to wonder how long til it passes.

Human feelings are hard to bear.
How do we stay afloat amidst so many trials?
after another,
after another.
Growing pains.

Slowly, but surely,
Making us into better beings.
Reminding us why we are here.
And what’s really important.

Not I.
Not this.
Not anything
But love.

  1. So beautiful! I am also contemplating these things a lot lately. What are we really? I asked my husband that the other day and he thought I was going nuts. Why do some of us feel so deeply and have so many questions? Just glad to know I’m not the only one in this crazy journey they call life! 🙂
