The Joy of Weeping

And then cry some more

For every laugh you concocted,
For every fictitious smile,
You must shed a thousand tears

Your tears will bring you joy
They will cleanse you,
Wash out your sins
They will purify your soul
They will make you smile again

For you have been born in sin
You are guilty,
For you have decided to exist

Stones and beasts don’t cry
But you do
And you must

Then get up
Smile, wander around
Sin some more, and
Try to earn the pleasure of having
Another sobbing festival

Evil Saints, Innocent Devils
