It’s rain that comes down white as snow,
Innocent tears I’ve never known,
From a place deep down inside my heart,
They rip,
They pull,
They tear me apart.
I don’t know if they come from my eyes,
Or from someplace deeper down inside,
I watch my facial expression bend,
My mouth turns down,
The tears have no end.
Who am to cry at night,
When others have to put up fights,
To find their food,
To get their shelter,
Still I’m fed and wanting more,
The tears keep coming,
Still they pour.
Gripping on for better life,
I lay down my head for sleep tonight.

I love this poem! You did a really good job making it relatable. Everytime i cry i can't help think how stupid it is. Cuz what you said in your poem is true,
"who am I to cry at night,
when others have to put up fights?"
Very well done!

aww, that was nice to include the part about less-fortunate people. I was a little surprised at that. I mean, when I'm sad, all I can think about is my own issues (selfish, i'm sorry D: ) I love this line the best: "I watch my facial expression bend" because I can so easily imagine it and I'd never thought of smiles to frowns that way. it's so obvious but still, made me think a bit xD
