~ A Single Tear ~

We must travel onward
Or so we have been told
The trail will take lives
Of the young and old.

Blood will fall on earth
Last breaths will finally come
As we are made to leave
This place that we called home.

It is called the trail of tears
And if you wonder why
Look on my face and see
The single tear from my eye.

In that tear is the child
To young to understand
Why she will surely die
As she walks the land

In that tear is my brother
Walking tall and proud
Knowing the journey is his last
As he falls to the ground.

In that tear is a people
Who did you no wrong
Why did you make us suffer
For so very long?

In that tear is the story
Of the great Cherokee
Open up your heart and hear
This sad but true story.
