A Tear


If I were challenged to identify a symbol for a human life,

It would be this:

A tear

There’s no way around it

Simply no escapin’

If you’re gonna live, you’re gonna cry

Gonna cry when parents struggle

Gonna cry when you discover Life ain’t fair

Gonna cry when first rejected. Then again.

And again.

Gonna cry when friends

And lovers

Drift away

Disappear

Gonna cry when you lose your faith, hopes, dreams, looks, youth and vitality

Believe me,

You’ll cry when you are orphaned

Live long enough and you’re guaranteed to cry a whole lot:

Cry at weddings

Cry at first steps

Cry in ecstasy

Cry in sympathy

Cry because it’s all just...too, too

Beautiful

Cry because you kinda comprehend

Cry because you don’t
