it's ok to cry
sometimes it is good to cry.
for me, it's better when i am alone.
i can just cry and cry and pretend there is a theatre full of people
watching and crying with me, with sympathy in their hearts.
the thought of that, although absurd, is comforting.
when i cry, i cry alone.
in the shower, my own tears can blend in with the water.
so that the sadness and troubles that my tears represent
can be washed away the moment they escape me.
it is ok to cry.
even if you feel pathetic.
but then you need to pull yourself together and realize
you aren't the only person who cries.
someone you know is probably crying right now.
many people cried themselves to sleep last night
sometimes with a reason more justified than yours.
cry your eyes out.
but once you release your sorrows via tears,
don't forget to open them a little wider
to those struggling all around you.
because they need you.
just like you need them.
|if you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else|
and during those times you feel that not a single soul can comfort you, remember there is one who can
