I hear America crying, the scattered shouts I hear,
Those of victims, crying for a helping hand, but trying to be strong.
The homeless crying because they have nothing to eat.
The jobless crying because they have no means of earning money.
The widows crying because of the loss of body and soul
The parents crying because of a lost son to the world
The animals crying because they hide to save their lives
The tears of joy from a crying bride that is getting married
All crying for his/her own purpose
Joyous in the day, while secretively crying at night
Crying with their hearts filled with a burden for an unselfish cause
