dandelion feelings

today i will let myself feel the wind

but i will not be blown away.

i will let myself feel the heaviness of disappointment

but i will not crumble under its weight.


today i will hold my feelings like dandelions,

fragile and fleeting.

knowing that they are bound to get swept away

by the breeze soon enough.


today i will remember that the sun still shines

on overcast days,

even when i can't feel the warmth.


and He is still good,

even when the sun casts a shadow.

He is always good.
