To show tears is not weakness, sometimes it confirms inner strength!!

With the heavy scent of salt

and the sound of marching boots

My gravity defying tears

climb the hill of raw anguish

 

I do not cry through weakness

this military movement is one of vigor

When puddles form on the summit

revealing reflective skies abound

 

A Sun of optimism shall fall captive

held by the sticky film of my hurt

I will pilferage the energy

suck dry the atomic seed

 

My journey home

down the winding slope

Will be one free of pain

and my strength reconfirmed
