Thank God for Tears

Updated on March 29, 2015

I thank God for tears,
giving me nourishment to grow.
I thank God for tears,
I hate when I'm emotional.
I'm kissing my fears
and chasing rainbows.
Finally, I see in color.
Look out for my family,
'specially my mother
cause I'm leaving tonight.

Through all these years,
I thought I knew everything.
I've accepted that I'm a student
and now, I'm much smarter.
I'll swallow my pride and work harder.
Nothing is owed to me,
I'm just a princess
cause I'm queen's daughter.

I thank God for tears,
giving me nourishment to grow.
I thank God for tears,
I hold myself accountable.
Finally, I see in color.
Look out for my mother
cause I'm out of my mind.

I'm out of control
and it feels magical.
I'm chasing rainbows.


After I cry
really late at night,
I feel strong.
I feel alive.
After I cry
Myself to sleep
I feel at ease
I have peace, finally.
