I Cried [Poem]

Updated on September 21, 2017

Puffy, inflamed,

Burning eyes

Yes, I've cried,

Don't ask me why

I'm happy now,

There was no reason for crying

But suddenly, damn,

I felt the instinct inside

I felt the need,

And I've cried

No more now,

Not even a time

But some tears

Are still alive

      Tears are an excellent way to purge your soul. A cleansing like non other takes place when you allow your tears to continually flow. If the truth be told there is A disciplining that takes place as they flow. Thanks for the reminder, the times that I have cried brought back memories after reading this.
