Tears Of Change

One day Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered if her tears of grief would look different compared to her tears of joy, so she began to explore them up close under a microscope.

She studied 100 different tears and found that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions. The tears that come about from hard laughter aren’t even close to the tears of sorrow. Like a drop of ocean water each tiny tear drop carries a microcosm of human experience.

You must be wondering why am I talking about tears, Tears are the medium of our most primary language in moments as unrelenting as death, as basic as hunger and as complex as a rite of passage,

It is as though each one of our tears carries a microcosm of the collective human experience,

I believe everyone cries I also do, I cry when am happy, I cry when am sad, I cry when I laugh out loud, I’m very okay with that but let me tell you one thing am real annoyed by those girls who cry over men who don’t even deserve it, am not saying that’s bad as I also used to sail on that same boat but things has change, I say no more Crying over un important matters, Let use our tears to express what we feel inside our hearts on issues  that are challenge to us in our communities, there are lot of issues to cry out loud for…think about those teen girls who are forced to be married and experience sexual and domestic abuse from their called husbands, the poor young girls who suffer  from Female Genital Mutilation, it’s also very common nowadays for us youth to be asked for sex bribe (Sextortion) and many issues that we don’t talk about them but exists and real hurts our fellow girls and us youth in general

Stop locking yourself in a room and cry over nothing, if you have to cry, cry out loud on issues that real needs you to cry for.

Let’s cry for our community and country to change.
