The Right Way to Mourn

on

Is there the right way to mourn,
The death of someone you love?
We’ve all seen it in movies,
Tears flooding down the eyes.
Sad music, rain and all things grey,
But real life doesn’t sway that way. 


Some people do cry their hearts out,
Heart-wrenching guttural cries,
While some just let out  a few sobs,
In the memory of the ones that has gone,
Some could just stand and stare,
In utter denial, acting unaware,
Some could even laugh out loud,
Upon the cruel joke faith just played. 


You see dear, there are many ways,
For people to express their grief,
Each have their one story,
Losing a loved one isn’t easy.
Just because they do it differently,
You don’t hold the right to judge.
Cause there’s no right way to mourn,
The death of someone you love. 


Some could slit their own throat,
To reunite with the one that’s gone,
Some could cry for days and nights,
The melancholy swallowing them,
Some could act like nothings wrong,
Pretend the dead is still alive,
Some could turn to Jack Daniel’s,
Try and forget the fact so tragic
.
Everyone deals with it differently,
And there’s no perfect way.

      1. I guess the right way is acceptance. 🌷

      3. it is never, but I guess we can’t control somethings, we want to.. be happy always, but can’t. want to stay young, but can’t, want to stay healthy… but… you know there are many examples… but mostly If I see life gets meaning when we have all these up and downs in life.
        If I cant control it, I try some ways.
        If nothing works, got to accept.
        acceptance isn’t easy,
        if you made up your mind
        and it is if can dare to decide.
        decisions demand actions
        actions want enthusiasm
        and without that my friend
        life is miserable to live.

        I think you need to give yourself a safe space to totally let it all out. and realize that this will just be for a time. and eventually you have to get over it
