When I say "The tears I cry are not mine", I'm basically saying that I don't cry because of how I may feel, I cry for others when they aren't strong enough to cry for themselves. It's their tears I'm crying in essence, not mine. When the tears dry up and fade, no one will cry anymore, and they will dry up and die. This is an abstract literary view of the word empathy, a word which means a great deal to me.
