The tears we shed are part of the grieving process; they help us heal and become whole again.


Unanswered questions rise weakly/
bewildered masks I don/
Why the frivolous antics?
Why play the role?
I know the truth/
I know!
Even as rehearsed words/
drip from your lips/
requiring an elixer/ mixed/
I know the truth/
still/
my mind's uncharacteristically silent/
&/
it's whispers/
strained/
I don't know what to do/
I'm not strong enough/
to move/
away/
then/
the rain begins/
falling from my eyes/
suddenly/
they dislodge dedication/
loyalty/
illegitimate & contrived/
cumulus emotions clear/
slowly/
my hands retrieve the sacred soul/
excavated by refreshing streams/
it is frail/
in a wounded state/
til the cleansing rains begin to fall/
now/
I C/
I C/
my hands retrieve the sacred soul/
& now I C/
with clarity/
convergence's no longer viable/
reliable/
I cannot take your insularity/
I will not take your insularity...
