Streaming Tears

The river runs deep

Deepened with crimsion

Each death premautre and unjustified

Lives claimed



Left behind are family

                          loved ones



Their tears soaking

Seeping into a permaint body

Sorrows unspoken

A breaking that is united in pain


Each tear dropplet despoited in the stream

The saltiness burning the pain

Rushing tears rolling over and over




Where the idea of drowning is renewed with each second of every day


This stream

Born on the backs of concerned individuals

Where the idea of a damn isn't enough

For along has life is devalued

Tears will collect and flow as a rushing stream
