Tear's Journey

I feel you inside me
 somewhere near my core
   as heartbreak begins
 watching a somber story unfold
feeling incapable of changing
 the course of wrong to right

I feel you enter my heart
 as I sense an internal sob
  raging against my resolution
 to stay detached from the sorrow
to leave the injustice out of my reach
 others to pick up the pieces

Then you totally go against my wishes
 by rising from deep within me
  to gather at my sight making unclear
 the stand I am trying to take
though uncertainty prevails

A blink sets forth your tangible journey
 bringing into focus the path I am to take

    I see you all found some inspiration while I was not at the Soup this weekend. I enjoyed reading your poetry today and will be back again soon to read more Shani. May you have a week of good health, joy and sunshine to light up your life. Love, Carol
