Tears are not always shed in pain.
Many books have been written in tears.
as well, containing their share of laughter.
Much of history has been written in tears.
with its thread of struggle and strife.
Life can be a school for tears
as well as a school for laughter.
Does one have to be taught to cry?
Does one have to be taught to laugh?
Life speaks a language spoken in tears
as well, a language spoken in laughter.
At times it is difficult to resolve,
at times hard to find the borders
hard to find the edges.
