My Nani told me it’s okay to cry
for any reasons amongst these five;
A tear of joy
for a laughing newborn that catches your eye.
A waterfall of remembrance
for a loved one who has died.
The occasional hail,
strengthening us from the hardest of times.
to shed regret from our minds
Lastly, a torrent of experiences
for that you are the first of their kind.
As we came to a close, Nani was sure to remind us
that our tears can be as nourishing
as each of the 5 rivers we left behind.
