What I Learned From Sadness

What I Learned From Sadness


What I learned from sadness was,

even if it seems endless

surely someday it will finish.

Anyway, when we die, it will end.


What I learned from sadness was,

even if I comfort someone,

I can’t remove their sadness.

That is why, I shall cry with them.

When we obtain something valuable from our suffer, we can feel satisfaction. This doesn't erase sadness, but we can have joy deep inside us. Probably artists beautifully expressing sadness can feel this kind of joy, I believe. Thank you for your nice comment, Faraz.
