It is not a scarcity
Of emotion
That dries my tears
The pain is there
Itís not from lack of moisture
Available to fall
Streaking down my cheeks
But a scarcity of hope
That tears might help
Change things somehow
Without that hope
That things might actually get better
What good are tears
Why should they fall

I do appreciate where you are "coming from" with these verses, Sue. Love and peace to you,

You are right. Tears rarely change things for the better. However, no one knows the future. Even when one believes things are impossible to change for the better, often things do change for the better. Even when we are without tears and without hope. So skip the tears but go ahead and let yourself hope that you are wrong when you think things are hopeless.

A very good question sis. But tears I hear are the cleanser of the soul. Sometimes tears come from my eyes, for no reason. But when there is something to do with pain, they refuse to fall. I guess because I am so numb to pain of any kind, that tears are not the answer.

You have written a powerful poem from deep in your heart and soul.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Very nicely done although a little sad, but without the benefit of pain now and then in love as in life...enui would soon set in.
