I Am Emotion

I am emotion
No matter my wisdom
No matter my age

A tear in every moment
As I have lost my voice
Where once I thought of joy
Now I have a choice
To laugh or cry
In the face of pain
To see the sun
When all I have is rain

I am emotion
No matter my education
No matter my wage

A laugh in every moment
As I find my voice
Where once I thought of sadness
Now I’ve made my choice
To laugh
In the face of pain
To see hope
In the drops of rain

I am emotion
No matter my freedom
No matter my cage

A poem in every moment
As I hear my voice
Where once I thought of nothing
Now I accept my choice
To express my fears
In the face of pain
To see my heart
Dancing in the rain

In the face of pain, we are but ONE emotion. It is very nice how you have put this together especially adding the 'rain' factor in your emotions. Beautiful and sharing. :)

This is quite beautiful, Suburban Poet. To choose to smile, to laugh, to dance: to rejoice in the face of pain is indeed a choice. I think that pain helps shape us; helps us to more appreciate the simple joy of life itself~each day is a gift we should embrace fully. Well said!

Thank you all... this is a very personal statement. My Father's Alzheimers is starting to become a very real problem now and I was feeling gloomy so I wrote this piece.... thank you again. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
