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.
