“…I’m sorry…” she says – her words marked by embarrassment and a false sense of humor.

Her apology for tears.

Tears that reveal her pain
Tears that point to her hope – unfulfilled

Streams of regret and doubt flowing down her cheeks
Streams washing away her mask of cover up, eye-liner, and apathy

Tears of vulnerability and weakness
Tears showing the world her humanity – her heart

Never apologize for tears.

Tears release pain
Tears clear the way for new dreams

Streams make new paths for joy and laugh lines
Streams wash away our false selves – making way for true identity

Tears connect one broken person to another
Tears show the world our humanity – our heart
