Tears of Pain

Tears of pain stroll down my cheek

Tears of pain go down valleys of shame

Where the weak walk and where the strong are never found

Tears of pain that for years built up

Where every month it built up

It rushed out like a river breaking a dam and flooding a city

Tears of pain that will never go away

Until I don’t breathe and never feel

Will these tears of pain go away.
