A Mother's Tears - Poem by Sarah A. Bell

A mother's tears flow at the birth of her child.
A mother's tears flow at the death of her child.
A mother's tears are a cloak of protection saturating her offspring, from the crown of their head continuously to the soles of their feet.
A mother's tears reach the highest mountain and go down in the lowest valley.
A mother's tears tell her offspring while they're on the mountain top, "I knew you could it."
A mother's tears flow down to the lowest valley; enabling her offspring to swim out of destruction to safety.
A mother's tears are like a music composition, each note and tear is waiting to hear and feel the crescendo.

Flirting With The Enemy

Flirting with the enemy will bring
destruction and shame --

Flirting with the enemy have only
earthly gain --

Flirting with the enemy covers
you in utter darkness --

Flirting with the enemy
keeps your heart (spirit) stained --

Flirting with the enemy will bring
a reproach to God's name.
