they streak down my face and onto the floor
I cannot contain them anymore
they manifest from my doubts and fears
I'm not ashamed these are my tears.
They fall from my mind's eye and onto the floor
shed from a wisdom I wasn't ready for.
they'll blur my vision until they clear,
I now walk blind these are my tears.
They cloud my thoughts and shroud my mind
my soul they seize my heart they bind.
In my head theyd burn and sear
but I kept them there these are my tears.The more they fall, the more I find,
I'm in a poor state of mind.
I fear I may be for several years,
they may burn my eyes,but these are MY tears.......
