Glistening teardrops
Stream from eyes
Long embittered
By the bitter harshness
Of life’s cruel burdens.
Surging waters
Threaten to engulf
The poor, hapless soul
Wallowing in self-despair.
The aching heart
Yearns painfully
For a fragment
Of fragile-winged happiness.
Ringlets of doubt
Can be seen
Swiftly circling
As the travailing soul
Prays for a sturdier faith
And the endless shining of the sun.
