The Beauty of Emotions

By Caitlyn Markwalter

Depression is like a cloud
That never goes away
To let us mull over things
That don't matter anyway

Happiness is like a flower
Blooming into something more
Perhaps to help us through
Problems and solutions galore

Anger is like thunder
Tearing through the sky
Hurting hearts, ruining lives
Though people may ask why

Love is like a bubble
That can come and go
When one pops, there's another
When it's there, you'll know.

Loneliness is like a tree
A tree in the plains of grass
Where it is all alone
Just letting the time pass.

Joy is like an infection
But, in a good way
Spreading to everyone through a smile
Who knows who you'll cheer up today.

Envy is a disease
Infecting every one
If only we can stop
We can surely see the sun

Smiles are contagious
There's nothing to hide
Don't be afraid
Let the bad feelings subside.
