When disappointment wails


Take this sense of raging disappointment: set it down, 
hold its hand, and let it tell you how it feels.
Let it wail; let the echoes of the anguish and betrayals of its youth
resound in the caverns of your heart,
and let it weep until its tears are spent and gone.
Now carry it, quite tenderly, to some safe and quiet place
and let it rest, rocking gently in the cradle of the stars.
