I am grief, I am expression, I am strength
Born from the tears of the Apache tribe, I am a stone of grief, healing, and powerful resilience.
When you look at me, what do you see?
A pebble, solid and shining,
Black as midnight sky.
But do you see the sadness?
The grief I carry deep inside?
I am born of Apache warriors,
Killed in battle;
I am the tears of their widows, their children.
Tears turned black,
Grief hardened into stone.
I am a stone of sorrow, yes--
But I am more than that.
Like the resilient tribe of so long ago,
Like a broken heart, I heal.
I am grief, I am expression, I am strength.
I am Apache Tear.
