Tear drops glimmering like diamonds

Creating pasterns of rivers

Criss crossing creating a quilt like effect


Mini waterfalls

Soaking into the pillow

Having no idea

why the tears fall


Sometimes it’s just

a release of pent up emotions

kept bottled up for far too long


when it becomes hard to stay that way

and life becomes so overwhelming

Like an all consuming fire

left to burn for days on end


After all sometimes its best

to cry sometimes.

After the tears comes clarity


Despite everything

Knowing you’ll be ok in the end.


And the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
