Tears - Poem by Robert Hiers

Why would you hide your tears?
Especially from me, who asks only that you be you.

Do you hide your tears from yourself?

Why would you hold back your tears?
Tears do not diminish you, except in the minds of those already weak.

But each droplet is a lesson for those willing to learn.

Why would you hide your tears?
Your tears do not demand action or even understanding,

Do you hide your tears from yourself?

    Tears are seen as a weakness... we hide them from ourselves as we do from others.

    Tears are the final stage... to our loved ones we never show our tears...
