Tears of Joy
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
Look into my big brown eyes,
you will see the tears I cry.
You will see my lonely nights.
You will see my deepest frights.
You will see my deepest insights.
Days, weeks, months, and years have
gone by, and still, I await paradise.
My eyes have grown dim and my hands have
grown feeble, but still, I await paradise.
My enemies mock and scorn me, but
still, I await paradise.
My family and friends laugh and ridicule me,
but still, I await paradise.
Yes, I was young, but now I am old.
Yes, I was respected, but now I am mocked.
Yes, I was healthy, but now I am ill.
Yet, I am not moved or discouraged.
I am not perplexed or twisted.
For I heard King David say,
“Those who sow in tears will
reap with songs of joy.”
Therefore, my tears will become songs of joy,
and my weakness will become my
For I heard the Lord say,
“My strength is made
perfect in your weakness.”
