Tear Drops in Church

So why do people wait till they go to church to cry
Well I don't think they expect to cry I think that's something else coming from they're eyes
Maybe it's God's own way of cleansing
Because I noticed that when they cry they get weak and start bending
What is that coming from there eyes
Maybe it's sorrow, pain, or there own lies
Maybe they're crying out there sin
Or maybe they're crying for someone else close to them
Maybe they cry because they're in need
Or wait, I remember in church the pastor was talking about planting seeds
Maybe there tears are watering the seed of change that they planted
Or maybe they didn't know what to do so they panicked
Maybe there tears of joy, the tears that say they're safe
Maybe something good happened and the tears say thanks
I think each tear has a different meaning or story some people would say
But either way I think that every tear drop in church means that they had some type of understanding that day

Cool, I like it except for when you mean possessive it's their, not there or they're.  My mom's a police about that:)

I really like this poem.  I don't go to church, but I could imagine that some of the material discussed there would indeed trigger such responses.  Lovely, spiritual piece.  Keep on writing.
