Poem of the Week: Tears of the Sun

From the balcony of my thoughts

Tear drops, wondering asking

Where is God when it hurts?

Slowly my inside all turn to ash

As I hang on the edge

Waiting for the wind to whisper to me

Dark clouds gather to pray, like the heaven has lost an angel

The wind blows, sounding so dissatisfied

I heard the cries, I saw the tears

I quiver, gnashing, mind cold and terrified

Saying wake me up, it’s only a dream

Wish time will wash my memory clean

The inexplicability of life is beyond the writings on the wall

Or the scriptures on a clergy’s lips

That little child begs for a dime

Life has it all

Is like some are born into greatness

But nobody was born to fall.
