Main Street Quincy, Ca 95971 WHEN YOU HAVE SPENT When you have spent so much of what's in you And have no feelings left to burst in tears, A therapeutic thing that you can do Is run with hopes suppression disappears. There is no goal nor any place to hide So take whatever road that comes your way And use a pace your heart can well abide Until exhaustion gives your tears their sway. And then unleash the gush of pent-up pain Without attempts to stop or stem its flow Until the well has no more drops to drain Where then you'll better face your mental woe. There is a purpose for the gift of cleansing tears For shedding them becalms and reason reappears.
