Do Not Wipe Your Tears Away


Do not wipe your tears away.

Let them flow down your cheek.

Let them create a stream on your face

to allow the healing waters to flow.

Let the waters cleanse your skin

and wash your face with silk.

Let them caress you lightly

and reveal to you, your heart.

Let the water fall to the earth,

and a tree will grow from it.

Let your tears flow from their depths

and they will release the seeds of your soul

Do not be careful

Do not be contained

or proper or polite

Do not wipe your tears away
