Early week wordplay

Let tares grow,
let tears flow;
there is no
justice without
tearing our
selves apart;
Until life’s ending,
we are left tending
weeds tenderly
as the wheat field.

alternatively

Let tares grow,
let tears flow;
there is no
judgement without
tearing our
selves apart;
Until its ending,
life’s left tending
weeds tenderly
in the wheat field.
