I Cry

This is one of my favorite poems of Tupac’s. Being a writer I am big on using words as a form of expression because they are powerful when used correctly. Tupac was incomparable when it came to that. If the writer is good enough it is very easy for me to connect with their emotion through their lyrics and get lost in them especially when the lyrics speak as loudly as these do. Music can be a vessel into your soul, a source of healing and comfort. A place of solace. And at times that’s where I go when I find myself needing clarity. I put in my ear buds and I press play…..and sometimes I put in my ear buds and I Cry….

Sometimes when I’m alone
I Cry, cause I am on my own.
The tears I cry are bitter and warm.
They flow with life but take no form
I Cry because my heart is torn.
I find it difficult to carry on.
If I had an ear to confide in,
I would cry among my treasured friend, but who do you know that stops that long, to help another carry on.
The world moves fast and it would rather pass by.
Then to stop and see what makes one cry, so painful and sad.
And sometimes…
I Cry and no one cares about why.

– Tupac Shakur
