Blog Post Showcase: Angela Tulloch: Grief and Loss Poetry Part 5


Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday’s new ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.

In Today’s post, Angela shares another lovely poem about grief, particularly in regard to grief and culture.

Make sure you read part 1, 2 , 3, and 4.


Grief and Culture


We all grieve in different ways depending on your culture, religion and experiences.

Here’s a poem to encourage you in your personal and very individual journey with grief and loss.


Who said it should be this way?


Don’t judge me if I don’t wear black

Don’t judge me if I’m not sad

Don’t judge me if for that moment I smile when others cry.

Don’t judge me if I dare to dance again.

Don’t judge me if I dare to sing again.

Don’t judge me if I dare to love again.

Don’t judge me if I dare to live again.
