Just last evening, I just read someone’s poem entitled “Smile”. The poem is unique, written in free verse and the content is very varied. After reading it, it does make me smile. How I wish I could write like that.

Perhaps, I am brought up in the old school. Very conservative! I feel more comfortable with my own style than copy or imitate other’s.  Well, the poem “Smile” brought back another poem which I wrote many years ago. It is entitled “TEARS”. I would like to share it with you.



Moist eyes,

Laughter or cry,

Add to the occasion,

Intertwined with extreme emotional feeling,

In exhilarating joy or excruciating pain,

Genuine and beyond one’s control;

Freely flow to lubricate,

The delicate machinery,

The mundane



One thought on “TEARS
