After the storm
During the storm, the drops of rain rage down unto the ground in a barrage of catharsis, discharging all the sadness retained and giving it a new perspective: It's something beautiful.
All the thunder that roared through the storm, and the lightning that terrified in those moments of calmness, they're now different.
After the downpour of tears throughout our being, we can learn something beautiful about sadness: It helps.
It allows us to reflect on our life and each of its moments (good or bad); it allows us to better understand ourselves when the world falls; and teaches us that true beauty lies within understanding.
