You Have to Cry Sometimes

by DMecca7


you have to cry sometimes
is what my mother told me
release that pain inside 	
or it will eat at you slowly
it doesnít threaten your manhood
or is considered a sign of weakness
why you think God gave you tear ducts
so you can show joy and release stress

you have to cry sometimes
is what I need to learn
I try to release that fire within
but all I get is heartburn
I donít think I can take too much more
Iím hanging on by a small thread 
I keep trying to squeeze out tears
as I think of what my mother said

you have to cry sometimes
in order to gain that extra breath
to help carry you on
when you feel there is nothing left
let them run down your face
and wash away those fears
donít be afraid to let them go
and watch the hurt start to disappear

you have to cry sometimes
is what my mother told me.
