Who is Crying?

A heart is hidden
Behind walls of steel
A soul protected
By walls of lies
A fear striking out
And courage staying in
But on one day
The walls shall fall
For truth holds power
And lies hold none
Open your heart
And release the fear
Hide not your truth
And embrace not the end
A tear slips past
As an enemy through the gates

For who is crying?
And who is not?
Who is dying?
And who is trying?
Who is buying time?
And who is letting it slip away?
For on this day
Who is crying?

A heart of black
A soul of strife
Created by hate
Never nurtured by love
Pain overwhelming
And fear all consuming
Life is hidden
As strength is projected
But weakness is there
So past slips a tear
And ends the play
Of a masterful actor
Struck down once again

For who is crying?
And who is not?
Who is dying?
And who is trying?
Who is buying time?
And who is letting it slip away?
For on this day
Who is crying?

A life of terror
A heart never open
A soul destroyed
And a spirit strengthened
All this has passed
And continues to move
A never-ending cycle
Of pain and triumph
Of hope and fear
A life filled with laughter
A life filled with tears
A life is filled
But with what
We are never sure
As crying inside continues
And strength, the facade, still holds

For who is crying?
And who is not?
Who is dying?
And who is trying?
Who is buying time?
And who is letting it slip away?
For on this day
Who is crying?

Tears never ending
But still never seen
Pain immense yet hidden within
Agony the truth
And hope brushed away
Fear holds its ground
And strength withdraws once again
Weakness buried
Still never gone
As life moves on as a song
A tear slips past
As a sour note
Destroying the once sweet sound

For who is crying?
And who is not?
Who is dying?
And who is trying?
Who is buying time?
And who is letting it slip away?
For on this day
Who is crying?

Pain so great
And fear so real
Hope has been crushed again
And love has been pushed away
'The truth shall set you free' they say
And this it may do for some
'Confession is good for the soul'
THis is true
But will time heal all wounds?
Tears break past
As a river ravaging the dam
And as that is seen
Hope shall rise
As a phoenix from the ashes
Truth shall heal
And pain shall kneel
As love is released into the world
By a heart that remains true
Through it all
As a tear is allowed to slip past

For who is crying?
And who is not?
Who is dying?
And who is trying?
Who is buying time?
And who is letting it slip away?
For on this day
Who is crying?
