Anthem for Those Still Grieving

2 posts in this topic

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.
