Tears - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

Tears roll down
Till they announce they have been there
And an enquirer quips, ' Why do you weep? '
Thank you tears, now roll back.

A wise man said, 'Men should not weep'.
But for centuries men have ever wept!
Tears have no gender
And they serve a purpose.

Tears have a smell still-
The smell of a coward within
Tears cleanse the eyes
And as they dry up, the mind becomes calm.

Tears still roll down
The cheeks of men and women and mine too
And they are the pulses of the world around
That has no concerns.

The wise man`s saying still echoes in the mind,
'Men should not weep'.
And I have to trace my gender
That is lost between the past and the present.

The wise man was wise I know
His wisdom disturbs my reasons for men`s tears!
But I prattle like parrot
Tears serve a purpose every time, you coward.
