River of Tears


The weight of the world is heavy
So heavy that it crushes the soul
And soon the clouds that play in the sky
Begin to cry once more

Some benefit from this happening
While others face defeat
And the the river begins to be filled with tears
Tears that it is afraid to release

As the water continues to plummet down
The river can take no more
It soon releases those tears
It can’t hold them in anymore

Poor river flowing with constant tears
Tears it wishes were no more
But the weight of the world is heavy indeed
So heavy it crushes the soul
