One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen
One of my boxers once asked me personal question after class . Something he had heard about me but was always to scared to ask .
I for some reason decided to tell him the story behind his question . I noticed near the end of the story that tears slowly welled up into his eyes and begun to express down this hardened athletes cheeks . He did not break eye contact me for a single moment and he just allowed the tears to gently find a path across his face and fall unencumbered to the earth .
He thanked me for sharing , shook my hand and walked away .
That was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen . Not once did he lift his hand to wipe away his tears in shame . He allowed his soul to openly express the pain he felt for what I shared .
I was walking through the mall today when I found my heart opening and I felt this great sadness escaping me . I realised that tears had begun to form .
I felt so sad I couldn’t hold it back, almost embarrassed to be there and suddenly I remembered my friend .
I allowed my heart to open and kept walking through the mall . I made no attempt to hide it . I just allowed the warm tears to flow quietly across my face. I walked past throngs of people wearing my pain .
I even smiled to a lady through my tears to assure her I was fine
I was just feeling right now
And thats ok
