Birds of Sadness

Shadow of sadness with birds of life., originally uploaded by min51.

“You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair.”

— Chinese Proverb

I suppose this is sound advice but isn’t it necessary to allow them to land amongst us and keep us a company awhile, every now and then?

I found the most amazing and relevant song by Catherine Feeney and thought you should hear it.

Take me somewhere I can breathe

Take me somewhere I can breathe, originally uploaded by G!L.
I want not to feel trapped,
glued within a story I do not belong…
not one more day.
I want not to feel anchored pathetic
to someone else’s shore,
buoyed in its misery.
I want not to forget…
the contoured belly of hope,
to lay idle blurring into obscurity.
I want not to inhale…
the fetid decay of who I once was,
exhaling despair in every direction.
I want not to pick the carcass of love…
for anything worth keeping…
watching wishbones brittle,
waiting to get the bigger piece,
anything—anything,
to be set free.
Take me somewhere I can breathe,
And I will sing you the sweetest song,
slightly off-key.
