Embrace the sweetness of sorrow
to show a tender side
or regale an outburst of laughter
pretentious cover, vulnerability deride.
Embrace the moments of melancholy
those times of in-between
hidden, only shall churn within
rather than certain demeanor seen.
Embrace the secrets of sadness
for depth is surely sought
and brazen outward countenance
vanity surely self-wrought.
Embrace the preciousness of joy
love’s contemplative sigh
to show truth and live aware
a work of God is nigh.
