On the Other side of Tears




Dried rivers run down soft slopes 
Slopes that for years bled tears 
Shaping the very foundation that is you 
The other side of tears 
Showing the other side of fears 
Manifested into years of trying 
Trying to see light in darkened tunnels 
The other side of tears 
Forgotten corners 
Desolate places 
With forgettable faces 
The other side of tears 
Is not a sad, sliding slope 
It’s a bridge leading you to tomorrow 
If only you’d prepare today 
The other side of tears 
Brings abolished fears 
Forgotten years 
Misery killed 
Life restored and lived 
The other side of tears
