Teardrop Puddles - Poem by Mara Dulce

See that puddle?
That seemingly meaningless puddle of water,
Water that fell from the heavens
Like gigantic teardrops

At first that water,
That teardrop water, reminds me of my own sorrows,
Sorrows that brought self-pitying tears
Like those of a child over a lost toy;

But then I think of my Savior,
That Savior who shed his blood for me,
Me, who cried those selfish, self-pitying tears,
Unlike He, who died for me.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was written while I was 'in recovery' after another 'tragedy' during my high school career. At this time in my life, I was trying to recover my walk with God after I had foolishly turned my back on Him because I wanted to follow my own agenda which involved things I did not need to be involved in.
