A poetry about finding yourself
Eyes the shade of a deep lagoon
Stare longingly into the sun
A heart that once echoed with sweet love songs
A soul with thousands of dreams
Both lay in a heap broken and torn
And my eye weeps a crystal tear

Life like a dark ominous force
Strikes crippling blows at the heart
Once standing tall and proud
Now hunched over like an old brooding woman
The weight of the world on her back
Such a bleak outlook on life, on my future
And my eye weeps a crystal tear

Gaining momentum as they stream down my face
Collecting as a pool in my hands
As I gaze into this watery puddle
I can see deep into my eyes
The very window to my soul
I can see the strength like a grand oak in a storm

These crystal tears like a savior
Rescuing me from the depths of despair
As I see the strong hope that my heart carries
I know I can make it

The healing process has begun….

….With a Single Crystal Tear
