Praise the Tears


I think I'm going to be okay
Inch by inch, day by day
My heart's been broken times before
The pieces strengthened in my core.

I think that I will be alright
Although I'm crying through this plight
My tears are friends to me by now
They comfort me as they fall down.

I cannot see how this will end
But God, my Lord, my constant friend
He has a plan that I will seek
Until my fate is down in ink.

I think I'm going to be just fine
I'll run the walk and dance the line
I'll sing the talk and find my crown
I'll praise the tears as they fall down.

I'll be alright. I know this much
Broken down by the Master's touch
Malleable, willing to bend in His hands
I'll be okay. Lord, what are Your plans?

    Thank you Kwame! Most of my poetry rhymes and I like that about it. It's just how the thoughts flow out of me. I don't have to try. (Report) Reply

    I admire modernist poets that rhyme in their poems. It's difficult to achieve that, along with other literary devices, so many of us shy away from it. Big ups. (Report) Reply
