I speak tears

My tongue is one of english's many offsprings,                
but the bitterness of life has thought 
me to speak the language of tears.
I learnt a language 
that accurately express my despairs.    

When I'm lost for words weeping is 
my speech.
The tales of my pain reveal as I 
fluently weep.  

In the proximity of my voice you stood and let your ears consume my 
you heard my cry, 
but you deny me your sympathy.

I built your pyramids and your bridges 
for free
so I cry to you for you owe me charity 

The good book said knock and it shall
be open
but I'm still standing behind close door. 
The tears I speak is the language of 
the poor.
I know the tears i cry will water my 
and let my cheeks blooms with 
for they that sow in tears shall reap in 
joy and live happily after.
