      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Anthem for Those Still Grieving

Recommended Posts

I've been told to move on,

to think of other things,

that I should not be angry.

I've been told that time heals the pain,

that those hard moments will stop.

I've been told that I should not still be grieving,

that Gram would not want me to.

I've been told to think of the happy times,

that remembering sadness will not help.


I am here to tell you

that I am not okay,

that there are hard days.

I am here to tell you that the hard moments still hurt,

that time has not healed this gaping hole in my chest.

I am here to tell you

that my grief is none of your damn business,

that I know what she wanted for me.

I am here to tell you that I try every day

to just remember everything about her.

I am here to tell you that I am still grieving,

the loss of her has shaken my core,

has left me broken.

I will not be happy all the time,

I will not make you okay,

because I am not.
