Tears of joy. For the absolute good. The good not asked for or striven for. The good that just is.
Tears of rage. For violations. Transgressions. The subservience of morality to indulgence.
Tears of fear. For hunger not satiated. For protection not available. For vulnerability.
Tears of innocence. For purity to be nurtured. For it to not get ravaged.
Tears of grief. For the mockingbird not saved. For possibility denied. For the choice that couldn't be.
Tears of reason. For the willful neglect of logic. By family. Friends. Colleagues. Strangers.
Tears of loneliness. For emptiness. For the mind tethered and left by itself.
Tears of hope. For that which may. For the slim chance. For the ray of light.
Tears of fulfillment. When the outcome long foreseen happens. When the illusion of control is foregone. When peace is attained.
