Cry! (Baby) This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I have a problem

My dog died

Huh! I actually said it

Has been a long time

Since my dog died

I've missed him terribly

Like the terrible misser I am

I haven't even cried

Since I died

Since I died

When I was five

I fell out of a tree

That was not very fun

To climb in

That tree was stupid

My dad shouted

When I started crying

My cheeks got all wet

And I tasted salt

When tears got in my mouth

My father scolded me

For Crying

He shouted at me

Boys don't cry, he said

To a boy

Five years old

And not allowed to cry

My father scolded me

For crying a little.

That's when I died

And when he died

I didn't cry.

I haven't ever cried

Since I died.

Since I died.
