tears

Written by: maria kyamulabye

i can see the light ahead
trying to reach it
but my legs are weak
my body is shaking

it is so dark around 
can't see where to put my feet
am scared to move 
but i also can't turn back

am tasting these salty tears
no comfort, no hope
i am aching 
my heart is breaking

i can't stop now
can't even rest
i am so cold
i am so cold
