Tare 4 a Tear

How do u measure a tear?
4 what shall u use 2 tare?
There r 4 a tear, many weights…

Tears of joy, tears of gladness,
Tears of sorrow, tears of sadness,
Tears of anger, tears of madness,

Does a tear of joy have less mass?
Does a tear of sorrow outclass?
Does a tear of anger overfill a glass?

Does it differ from child 2 child?
1 of wealth or of poor health?
Does it differ from one that is mild or wild?
Does it differ from which gender it is dealt?

Is a cry of hunger of skeleton weight?
A cry of sorrow from a Funeral Wait
Heavier than the vault’s weight?

How do u measure a tear?
4 what shall u use 2 tare?
There r 4 a tear, many weights…
2 know, we must from heaven, wait.
