Have you ever watched Undercover Boss? Every time I watch it, I get emotional and teards fall from my eyes. I tried to put my feelings into words and attempted to convey the significance of these dewy droplets and this is what I came up with. I’d love to hear feedback on this poem. I know one thing I’m happy about right now is that I can see. I cannot say this about everyone I know, though. I’ve met an inspirational guy recently, and had the pleasure of interviewing him and learning about his struggles. What’s ironic is that both he and I were included on a list of 9 inspirational bloggers! (Imagine my surprise at this!)
Anyways, here is the poem I wrote . . .
Behind That Teardrop
Behind that teardrop that rolls so silently down her cheek
lies emotions so vast, and strength and growth are cast.
Behind that teardrop, memories run deep. I see a streak.
Oh, my goodness I cannot help but weep.
Behind that teardrop, pain gives way to love.
Behind that teardrop, pride soars up above.
Behind that teardrop, vanquished is our grief.
Behind that teardrop is a haven of relief.
There are so many people in need.
There are so many little (and big) mouths to feed.
There are so many people struggling to live.
There are so many people with much love to give.
Behind that teardrop lie memories of joy, laughter, good times, hugs and kisses, and a loving touch;
Also sadness, sorrow and poverty – that little teardrop represents so much.
Behind that tiny teardrop is an ocean of gratitude that won’t stop.
What I’d like to know is: What’s behind YOUR teardrop?
Please share your thoughts and response.
