The tears, the grief, the bitterness
The anger, the revenge and recriminations
They will soak away
Soak away
Into the earth
And feed it

History will take them all
Absorb them, dull them into the distance
Until we are free to look
And try to learn
But the passion is
Soaked away
So the lesson is empty

The truths, the pains, the memories
The holes, the aches and the yearnings
They all soak away
Into the earth
Enrich it

Perhaps
We should hold the pain
Remember
And learn
