The Power of Tears


A single tear rolls down my cheek
Silent, shaky breaths escape my lips
I do my best to keep it quiet
But more ocean flows from my eyes
And I am overcome by the power of tears
I sink to my knees as they continue to flow
Slowly rolling down my cheeks
As more and more come
My skin is home to two waterfalls
Rolling down my chin and hitting the grass
Soon the grass is flooded
And a creek begins to form
The creek becomes a river
But still it continues to grow
Eventually I'm surrounded by an ocean
An ocean I created
My pain created beauty
Gladness came from my sadness
My tears are no more
But that doesn't mean my pain is
I know my tears will return
And once again I'll create an ocean
The power of tears will overcome me
A power to leave me powerless
