Still The Tears - Poem by Adegbite Adeyinka

Wipe the tears that drip down from your cheek
Grief will not give the answer you seek;
Though your cloud seems dark and the future, bleak
Hang not your head down as though you are weak;
Harness the strength which, inside you, lies
The days are bright says always the wise;
Hold not the thought to end your life
It would be the start of an endless strife;
See beyond the times you are going through
The Father, He cares for me and you;
Still the tears and wipe away your fears
In the end, your life will be worth the years


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dedicated to those encountering difficult times. Do not lose hope.
