Tears

Pin-pricked heart,
Sin-slicked dart,
Ripped apart,
Sweet, yet tart.

Salty tears,
Fears for years,
Humility,
The end of me.

Pride is stripped,
Manhood snipped.
“Men don’t cry”?
What a lie!

An ugly crier,
Uglier liar,
Harp and lyre,
Why so dire?

Tears are spent,
Never wasted.

Repentance,
My pennant.

With me undone,
I see The Son…

Clearer now,
Awe and wow.

Pride erased,
Seek His face.
Joy will haste,
Embrace His Grace.
