And If My Soul Is Crying

poem by: Carl Halling
Written on Nov 08, 2016

It's happening again,
Such unbearable pain, 
And if my soul is crying
As my heart is breaking, then that's fine…

I've let so many people down,
Lost so many beautiful opportunities
I feel so failed and forlorn,
But is that really such a tragedy?

Perhaps, rather, 
It's a positive thing,
Shouldn't a true artist be suffering?
At least I'm feeling something…

It's happening again,
Such unbearable pain, 
And if my soul is crying
As my heart is breaking, then that's fine…
