Tears are too often mistaken for weakness,
but that is far from the truth.
With each salty, glistening drop shed,
strength flows from my soul.
Tears are the battle cry of strong emotion,
welling up to express sadness, joy, shock, and anger.
I feel sad for those who don’t allow themselves the strength to bare their emotion,
but hide behind a wall of arrogance and austerity.
As for me, tears are a part of who I am.
Let there be no shame in the beauty of a soft and gentle heart
filled with human emotion that sometimes overflows its dam.
Life is emotion;
emotion is life.
Let the world see my heart for all that it is,
soft yet strong,
