I'm happy
I'm cheery
I'm strong
I never break
But you
Only you
Know that I
I am fragile
Fragile as an egg
A chip or a crack
And I spiral down
Into the abyss
The liquid inside me
It pours out
Onto the ground
In little drops
Of sweet
Sweet sorrow
My tears spill forth
From my once guarded eyes

You walk to me
To comfort me
To hold me
I push you away
You can't see why
Why I do this
This act of strength
I won't take your pity
Pity for one
One who doesn't
Doesn't deserve it
Have you ever thought
Thought that maybe
Just maybe
I'm being strong for you
Because no one
No one was strong for me
So hold me anyways
Show me what
What it means
Means to be weak
Because I didn't
Didn't want to be
Be like all the others
That let me down
I need to know
That it's okay
Okay to be weak
In your arms
And let the tears
Flow unguarded

It's been too long
Too long of being strong
It's time
Due time
To let you see
I'm not without
Without wounds
Of my own
I'm just broken
Like everyone else

I'm sorry
To have
Ever pushed
You away
So far away
Pull me close
Hold me tight
I don't have the strength
The strength to fight
I need your love
And your pity
On my broken
So broken
Heart and soul

What an absolutely beautiful poem. Incredible.

And, in my opinion, crying is not a sign of weakness. I think being afraid to cry is a sign of weakness. To get over that fear, takes strength. Don't ever be afraid to cry.

Thank you for your comment! It is very true, crying is not a sign of weakness.
