The Story of Sweat

this is a story about sweat..

that conceived by mom's prayer
- who make love with misery
born because of dad's love
- who was married to poverty
and being a kid who grow up
- in the hunger's loving caress

its spirits will fly to the sky
fuse with the clouds, also the stars
then melt into rain formations
to gain its own reputation

so its ancestry will meet the sunlight
refract the paradise
where the beauty become a bride
and happiness stay for the rest of the life

    An excellent poem and very well written. One can only imagine the drops
    of water just glistening like pearls on a workers face. Through all of this
    their sweat bears beautiful fruits of love that feeds a family, community
    and ultimately the hands strength to go even further. Very good. (Report) Reply

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
