Elements



It's funny:  People love the sun even though it burns them...and people despise the rain even though it washes them clean.

Sometimes, I think we, as humans, are drawn to pain.  What is the focal point of so many poems?  Country songs?  Romantic comedies?  "Love" was probably the first word to pop into your head, and I would imagine that "heartbreak" followed soon after.  In all reality, though, love is the only emotion powerful enough to cause the devastating let down after a true heartbreak.  

The sun has the power to burn us, but we embrace the sun because it also brings us light.  If you let it, the rain can cleanse your body...your spirit...your soul!  Nevertheless, all we seem to see is that rain also has the power to completely destroy us.  If it rains too hard - too much - you will drown.  In essence, the water will suffocate you until you are less and less of who you once were.  It is then that you become nothing more than a body...the shell of someone who was.  

The sun leaves no marks.  When it burns you up - the tops of the  flames various shades of blue - there will be no proof.  There will be no proof that you ever even existed.  There will be no traces of you left behind.  

So let me ask you...which is worse?  Love is heartbreak.  Heartbreak is love.  You can't have one without the other; all you can do is hope for the right balance.  

The sun will burn, but it will also light the way.  You may practically drown the rain, but it is then that you will learn how to swim.  Everything will wash away, but you.  You, my dear, will stay above the water.  

We may say that we love love and hate heartbreak, but the truth is that with great heartbreak there is great love.  If the love is strong enough it will overcome the heartbreak,  if the heartbreak prevails then we must know in our hearts that an even better love will follow.  It is important to appreciate and claim all of the moments that we experience.  Love the good, the bad, and the ugly.  I have loved it all, but I have honestly learned the most from the rain.
