Tears Poems: 150 / 500

Day By Day*

Rating: 3.2

Like peeling onions
removing the skin
layer by layer
all the while shedding tears,
so is emotional recovery.
Day by day;
crying,
putting the hurt behind,
reviling the inner strength,
suddenly realizing
life is good again.
The tears have washed the pain away
