Unexpressed Emotions

 

Unexpressed emotions will always find a way

           To journey to your heart and have their loving say.

 

They will tell you that they’ve traveled a hard and lengthy road.

           They will tell you that it’s time that you unburden and unload.

 

If the old does not move out, then the new cannot move in.

           A blockage will occur and the process will begin

 

The process of releasing is what our spirits do

           By recreating dramas that will let old feelings through.

 

At first you may not recognize, be aware of, or suspect

           How feelings from the past and the present all connect.

 

It’s a spiritual necessity, a universal need

           That emotions be experienced before they can be freed.

 

Emotions that prefer and would rather give their space

           To healthy new emotions that would like to take their place.

 

No tired old defenses will take from us or steal

           God’s greatest gift of all, the capacity to feel.

 

Unexpressed emotions will always find a way

           To journey to your heart and have their loving say.
