    I cry rivers of life that pour down the mountain top of my world,
    Onto the sticky pavement that I rest my feet
    I’m head fakin,and crossing over trying to fake out deciet
    But hes crafty, and shady, and maybe I’m to slow for his flow
    Or his breath that makes my spine shiver,
    I don’t know why I cry rivers.
    I cry rivers of life that rain down from the sky filled with pretty shades of blue
    Thick clouds that cover mother earth, misty sweat, that forms the morning dew.
    I cry rivers of life that drip slowly down the sidewalk that I take my journey
    Through the wild jungle that lies before me.
    I ain’t got time to sift through the thick shrub,
    Cause in the jungle their ain’t no love,
    Only rivers that make my spine shiver, and I duck and hide,
    From the rivers I cry.
    I cry rivers for Angels fallen then risen,
    Souls stolen before our time, but not God’s time,
    Cause his time is not the same as yours and mine,
    So I choose not to define my time here on this earth,
    I will cry my rivers until I am delivered to my re-birth.
    I cry rivers of life when I lay down at night,
    And pray to my Creator that he holds me tight.
    I cry rivers that bind my mind to the changing of the times
    And my rhymes will deliver me from the river that consumes me,
    That runs deep in the right and left sides of my brain, but I can’t contain
    The overflowing river that I hold inside,
    So the waves of my river I will continue…..to ride.
    I cry rivers until the ducts in my eyes run dry.
    So then silent tears are what I cry.
    I cry rivers until the force of the water over takes the door,
    Releasing the reasons for my tears so that I can feel free,
    And my rivers of tears will flow no more……..

    sometimes we cry so many tears we fear we shall drown..

    and when the soul cries tears it feels as if we shall die spiritually, while the body still lives...

    but in time your inner strength will overcome the sadness in the soul and you will walk in sunshine yet again...

    this is a great piece..

    Sometimes life makes it so that all we can do is cry, cry til we can cry no more. This piece so well describes that feeling. Awesome piece.

    tBone - Often a good cry can keep you from falling into a pit as well as help you get out of one. Enjoyed the craft of your scribe. HH
