They say, “No woman nuh cry”
Hmmm, …that’s a lie!
So, let me tell you the truth, my dear
Many a night I’ve soaked my pillow with tears
There was a time I wanted to die
So, I gotta stop and testify…
I was trapped in suicidal despair
And those forbidden tears were always there
So yes, women do cry!
There was a time I walked the streets
Looking a home for my child and me
There was no peace when I laid my head
For I turned my back on the grace of heaven
I walked alone!
Chose to walk alone
Chose to walk away from God’s holy throne
So yes, I cried
I cried life’s bitter tears
Drank from life’s bitter sea
Deception had taken a hold of me…
But when I couldn’t take it anymore
And all I tried had failed
I got on my knees and repented in prayer
Especially then, my tears were there
I cry when dark nights tarry on
And I yearn to glimpse the break of dawn
I cry for the Potter is molding me!
“No woman nuh cry”
That’s a lie …cause I’m a woman,
And still, I cry.
Life lesson learned through personal experience: regardless of how dark and dismal the present may appear, night hours eventually yield and give way to the morning’s dawn. Therefore, don’t succumb to the fear and doubts of today for the very thing you’re afraid of today, you might be grateful for tomorrow.
