Tears

a poem by Mahendra

How do you fight tears
and put on an act
when you know that
it’s a fact
that you can’t fight tears.

Tears of sorrow and pain
tears of people who are sane
but b’cos of their tears
which follow no rules
they begin to look like fools.

A tear proves love
which is far above
any sign of strength
tears are all you need
to fight hate evil and greed.

Tears are the silent cries
that can be heard
the echoes of loneliness
that are piercing
like the screech
of a wounded heart.

Tears speak biggest of volumes
without having to say a word.
Tears for whom silence is a virtue.

Who never let you down
after your heart is broken.
