Tears, desires and prayers
Tears…why are they salty?
Is it because salt heals?
Cleanses the eyes of impurities
And the soul of the pain it feels?
Are tears mildly antiseptic
to heal my heart when it’s sick?
And hearts…why do they desire?
Is it because when hearts yearn
They reveal what we must learn
To love and be able to discern
Is my heart pounding
because my soul craves for bonding?
And soul…why does it pray?
Is it because prayers are potent
Have the power to manifest
And ignite a flame that is dormant?
Is my soul praying
to hear what God’s saying?
