When We Cry

When We Cry

A Poem by Sunshine Kid

 

There’s no need
To cry
When nothing
Is lost
For that is why
We cry
Right?
We cry when
We lose something
We no we cannot
Ever get back.
We cry when our mind
Forces itself into
This idealistic state
Where we think
(And pretend to
Know)
That we will gain
That lost baggage
Again.
That’s when
We cry.
Everyone always
Finds me
With tear-stained
Cheeks
And blood-shot
Eyes.
Always.
For once
Not this time
I haven’t lost
What I’ve gained
I can’t be sad
For something
I know I haven’t
Lost.
I’m reveling in
The fact that
I have gained
So much
Friends
Experience
Happiness
Confidence
Knowledge
Trust
Sanity
How can
I cry
For I have not lost
Anything.
For once
For once
I leave a place
That means
So much
Smiling
Not
Sobbing.
Finally.
