April 12, 2010 - Mired


So many of the tears we cry
Do not cleanse our souls
Feeling sorry for ourselves
Will not make us whole

As we travel through the valley
Known as The Place of Weeping
We're not meant to stay there
Sorrow's not for keeping

Tears can wash away the pain
Of anger and of grief
But if we fail to grow and learn
They'll bring no relief

We feel what we feel
With this there's nothing wrong
Just ensure that you don't
Stay mired in your tears for long
