Angels cry 

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes humans are angels. You have the mother who works two shifts a day and still comes home to read for her daughter. The same child later cooks dinner for her mother because she loves to see her smile. These are examples of wings protecting its owners. Of soft feathers caressing vulnerable skin. But we can’t always be angels.

Sometimes we scream in frustration and hurt others. When we’re at our wits end and our negative emotions takes hold of us, we all do things we regret later. But that’s okay. How are we supposed to learn if we never take the wrong turn? Our wings must be taken care of, but we don’t always have the time or energy to do so. Just like a motor needs oil to work, black wings need to be cleaned. 

We use so much time on a particular negative emotion: Shame. We need shame to not steer too far from where we want to be, but often it adds weight to our burdens, as if we deliberately chain ourselves.

Tears are known for rinsing and cleaning our eyes, and when they fall on our sins, they help. Tears remind us of what we all are: People who try our best, but sometimes fail. We must strive to accept that to move on so we can fly again.

    The adage that men do not cry is a myth. But they cry inside and it burns them. They will not admit to it but the burn is everlasting.
