In these times of hardships,
I can’t say anything more
since I am pretty sure
that I don’t know how to convince
when the other is in grief
or how can I bring them some relief
in such times as these
that they may feel a bit more at ease.
I don’t know what else to say,
although it is not convincing, I know,
but I have to express my emotions
so that later, they don’t go astray
and shield themselves like a cocoon
in the shed of my unconscious
but afterwards to be known
and acknowledged by my conscious.
I know I have said a lot
around what I want to express.
It is taking my time to process
even though it is just a sentence
because I am not familiar with it.
I don’t know how to react to grief
in any other way except this.
I do not know how to express condolences.
I am not so familiar to shedding tears
to circumstances of grief like these.
I can, I think, just say to make you feel better
that everything will be alright.
