The Journey Of A Tear - Poem by Jasmine Fafanyo Awagah

She was home, home sweet home
She had no where to go
Feeling like she has been traped alone
The truth is it was His joy
She was happy He never met a girl

But what has happened now?
She is leaving but never proud
She travelled from the White House
through a little hairy place without louse
then to the path on the cheeks
She travelled all the way to the chin just with one leap

His broken heart caused this leakage
This journeying tear from His eye opens a new page
Love has made her tear flee from home
Now He wants the beautiful tear to stay home alone
never to journey again because to broken heart Hee never wants to be prone

He is right to imprison the tear but wrong
A tear travels not only when the heart is troubled with thorns
but will flee when she finds He right person
Joy can send her away from Him and never bring her back
She is shed when the heart is broken but flees when the joy never lacked


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A guy cried the first time after his heart was broken even though he never saw his tear. He cried again when he found true love. This is just to say tears are for the best feelings and worst ones too. Dedicated to HER
