Catchy title innit? 😉 Well, this piece was sent in by Akpobome Otobrise (@Coajlove).
The piece was inspired by a time in his life when things weren’t going so well for him, and he felt like he had to meet everyone’s expectations and take care of everyone.
Certain times in the lives of everyone there is a point where we shed tears,
No matter who you are
Be you a preacher,
There is always something you cry about,
It may be an ongoing project you wanna complete
Or an abandoned one,
A prayer point you want answered badly
Or someone you want saved.
Be you a banker,
There is always a target and a deadline.
Be you a lawyer,
There is always a case to win.
there is always a student that will give you issues to work on
an exam to pass or a project you want done.
a plane to fly or you want or don’t want to fly,
Sometimes you miss your family cos of lack of time and that makes your shed tears
a project to work on and a deadline given.
After all we are all human beings and tears were made so we can shed them.
Whether its tears of joy or pain,
Of love or hate
Money or fame.
The truth is not everyone gets to see our tears,
And after the tears we still come out and smile to everyone
Cos in all we cling to the tiniest of hope possible
That one day we all will accomplish our goals and deepest desires.
We all cry at a point in our lives either inward or outward
But must put on smiles cos as long as there is life there is hope.
