Summary of Poem

Teardrops fall is about tears falling from the sadness felt from everyone's heart who sees the destruction and violence in the streets from protests. God watches his creation fall apart as angels gather near praying we find faith in the darkness.

Teardrops Fall

Hate fueled protests
fills the streets,
destructive violence erupts,
God’s children weep
with a heartfelt sadness
tugging at their core.

Teardrops fall from heaven,
angels gather near,
sadness touches God,
watching his creation fall apart.

Scars dividing mankind
separation grows deeper,
the link we share is forgotten,
as angels pray we find
faith in the darkness.

Heartfelt Brenda and so true. The world is a sad place at the moment where love and compassion are sorely missing. Your poem is filled with sorrow and yet within this sadness our faith will help us to find each other.

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 09, 2020:

I agreed with you.

Lora Hollings on June 08, 2020:

We must unite as one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. We cannot continue on a course where we are so divided and where some think that they are superior to others. For the good of all and for future generations, we must now unite as one people with love and equality for all. Our leaders must also be of the mindset to unite us rather than divide us. Hopefully, we will see better days ahead and with new leadership, we will create the kind of Nation that we can be proud of!

Beautiful writing, Brenda. I love your message. Take care, my friend.

Thanks for the comment.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on June 07, 2020:

The teardrops are falling throughout the world, such hate toward our fellowman. Why must we see color instead of the person. This is a heartfelt poem.

Liz Westwood from UK on June 07, 2020:

There are a lot of things that are happening in the world that must cause sorrow for God.

Rosina,

It is still going on and I fear the coronavirus will spread quickly again as protestors are not even thinking about social distancing.

Love can solve many things.

Thanks for reading.

Have a good day.

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 06, 2020:

Brenda, many think God is not concerned when calamities befall mankind. The issue touch His heart and He cried. So, the angels covered they face and pray. That is why respite comes. Thanks for sharing.

CHATRA RAM from BARMER INDIA on June 06, 2020:

100% a nice poem and a nice songs

Thanks for share this

Rosina S Khan on June 06, 2020:

This poem refers to the recent tragic event that took place in the US. Hate cannot solve hate but love can. Let us all love each other. Love is the strongest vibrational force in nature and the solution to almost all problems. Thanks for sharing a different kind of poem, Brenda.
