Be brave

I was always
the one to cry
in seclusion
and let them think
nothing could
ever hurt me.

When everybody 
was telling me
I was brave
you wanted
to see me cry.

When everybody
was commending 
my 'glorious' smile
you were interested
in my tears.

When I was not
allowed to react
you wanted
to see me turn
into a mad woman.

You never called
me a weakling
and I didn't have to
pretend I was strong
you told me 
to be brave enough
to cry in front of  you.

      1. Agreed. If you can find the one who you can cry with you, and be you with, you might’ve found the right one for the future. You’re welcome. Have a great start to your week!
