21 tears
I heard that’s all you can cry
21 tears
You can’t make more if you try
Whether burning with anger
Or in the depths of despair,
21 tears shed
Before your eyes are bare
The pain lives on,
The fury rages,
But your tear ducts are enclosed
In well-kept cages
The body must maintain
Its water supply
Which is why the cage doors shut
Every time you cry
21 tears
The heart sees no end to the pain
But the eyes know
Peace of mind will reign
After 21 tears
