My Tears

The tears I cry are not blood nor are they weakness.
The tears I cry are a sign of the work within me, the rebirth of a woman who wrestles with monster that still try to destroy her purity.
The tears I cry are for my children, family, sisters and I.
With pride, faith hope and God, I walk my path, release my pain, embrace my joy and own my strength.
The tears I cry water the warrior in me and shall bring forth a field of sunflowers.
The tears I cry are mine and remind me of who I am meant to be.
I am Omphile.
I am a wombed man.
I am me

I am Omphile Onkgopotse Dimpane on facebook.

    Oh my I love this line: ” The tears I cry water the warrior in me and shall bring forth a field of sunflowers. ” It gives me hope. we know that we go through trying times but those moments do not last. Sunflowers represent hope and joy for me. sunflowers are actually my favourite flowers.
