Tears Are Coming

'Tears Are Coming' Thanksgiving Poem:

Tears are coming. Tears of joy and sadness Looking outside into the cloudy, bleak terrain Seeing the riot of color still on the trees Amidst the gray, dark, pre-thanksgiving day Wondering what it is like to enter a new land And yet, knowing as we, our world enters a new terrain Unknown, scary, filled with feeling; maybe all the feelings: Sad, mad, glad, hopeful, scared, lonely, full, unsure... Becoming one with my surroundings as our world, the nature around us Shows us how it feels and how to feel Tears of sadness, tears of joy Life goes on

Tears are coming.

Tears of joy and sadness

Looking outside into the cloudy, bleak terrain

Seeing the riot of color still on the trees

Amidst the gray, dark, pre-thanksgiving day

Wondering what it is like to enter a new land

And yet, knowing as we, our world enters a new terrain

Unknown, scary, filled with feeling; maybe all the feelings:

Sad, mad, glad, hopeful, scared, lonely, full, unsure...

Becoming one with my surroundings as our world, the nature around us

Shows us how it feels and how to feel

Tears of sadness, tears of joy

Life goes on
