Tears help cleanse our souls

They wash away the hurt and pain

That can sometimes drive some of us insane

Relieving the internal pressure on our brains

Making it easier for us to breathe again


Tears are one way of expressing our joy and sadness

The body’s way of easing the madness

So there’s no need to hold them back

They can be rather hard to control

As a matter of fact


So many times we’re often forced to fold

As the tears begin to roll down our cheeks

It’s clear by then that we’ve reached our peaks

So cry dear friend and let it out

Your heart is hurting, that’s nothing to be ashamed about


From our tears we can sometimes find strength

Surfacing from deep inside among the things we try to hide

For behind our tears there are often different fears

But never believe that no one cares.


So I’ll cry for me

You cry for you

We both cry when we hurt

This much is true.


Tears have a purpose and more often than not when we keep holding them back constantly we make it harder for ourselves emotionally.  When we allow ourselves to feel sometimes that’s the only way we can truly heal.

Have a good night.  Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Thank you Adrianna! You are so right it is what we do after we cry that determines our strength or weakness. Thank you for stopping by. 😊 Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Awesome post! I used to think tears were a sign of weakness. However, tears give great relief! And the only thing that shows us to be weak is what we do AFTER we cry! If you cry and refuse to get bck up and keep going, to me that is weakness! But those who are strong in the Lord may cry for a bit but they get back up and keep pressing when it’s all said and done…Thank God for tears and this awesome post! God bless ❤
