The Soul’s Rainbow
Are you acquainted with sorrow?
Have you known pain?
Have you prayed endlessly to God,
But, considered it in vain?
Is life, for you, a joke,
And you don't quite "get it?"
Do you arise, resignedly, each day,
And, then, later on, regret it?
Are your eyes often filled with tears?
Is depression a reality for you?
Do you sometimes want to take your life,
But, realize that's not the thing to do?
Friend, the only thing I have to say
As you go about your years,
Is that the soul would have no rainbow
If the eyes had no tears.
