Tears of love, tears of hate.
Tears all caused by inevitable fate.
They gingerly roll down my face,
Announcing to all my failures and disgrace.

Tears accompanied with unforgiving pain,
Both do rapidly my spirit drain.
I drown in my own tears,
The fall is steep and the ground is near.

Tears exposing my weaknesses to all,
Salty liquid surrounding my steepest fall.
Yet I know one thing for certain,
When I end, so will the burden.
