First there is the emotion
An overwhelming feeling of pain
A sadness on the inside
A soul that is screaming
Gasping for air
A mind that is dying
And now one that is crying
Two beautiful eyes well up
Slowly, Silently
A single tear slides
Out of the eye, over the cheek
A tiny drop of water
Salty taste of despair
But not of defeat
Another tear is sliding
Falling, dropping
Hit by a ray of light
A burst of colour
A splatter of rainbow
No more tears, time to fight back
Block out the pictures
The thoughts and emotions
Clenched fists
Stand up a little straighter
Stand up to face the world
Tears are a thing of the past
