When I cry these tears, this time
it won’t be because I’m hurt
It won’t be because I wish things were different
These tears, this time
won’t be because I don’t understand
won’t be because I should hang in there…
This time, these tears
are the clarity of it all
they are my voice saying “it’s enough”
they are my acceptance of things as they are
and the inevitable choice of letting go.
My tears are the end,
Me, putting my weapons down
and taking care of my wounds
before I go in any other battle.
This time, these are my tears.
