The Measure of Sadness [Poem]

Updated on September 25, 2017

When you are sad

you don't have to make a sadness-ranking.

It doesn't exist a Sadness-meter,

so it doesn't make sense

if you say I feel better/worse than someone else.

Sadness makes us obtuse and selfish.

It's a big glass case where we close ourselves in

and where we don't want to listen other people's sadness.

      That was brief, but it's also true! When we are sad we don't want to know about other people's problems, just wallow in our own.
