Don’t Trust People Who Cry?

Lone Sadness

People see people crying. What comes to their minds
First of all is that these people have no control
Over their emotions. There’s a sense of mistrust
In their motives and they’re looked upon with disgust.
People cry because they don’t feel completely whole.
They may act out in negative ways of all kinds.

The moment you start crying you’re giving away
To the universe your power so it’s been said
And it’s true. The emotional outburst will not
Do much good in fact it will only cause a lot
Of attention and drama and people will dread
Being near you because they won’t know what to say.

It’s a sure sign of weakness when you can be seen
As someone who can cry at the drop of a hat.
It’s not appropriate in our society
To express our discouragement vehemently
And there’s no way that people will get around that.
People won’t take the time to know just what you mean.

We must cry. Sometimes life introduces us to
Pain and sorrow. We can’t hold these feelings inside
Or ignore them. In public is not the right place
To let loose. You’ll be seen as an utter disgrace.
You want sympathy but it’s expressly denied.
They fear manipulation by the likes of you.


Triple Treasure

What has happened to me that I now realize
All the sins I’ve committed? Perhaps it’s old age
Telling me that my time draws closer by the day.
Do I have enough time left to properly pay
My way out of existence? Of late I engage
In self-evaluation before my demise.

Words don’t teach. Life experience is the only
Way to know life. I’ve learned that I know not a thing
About living except that my own life has been
Cataclysmic. There are those who would shout, “Amen!”
To my honest admission. On slim hope I cling
That a way out of this dilemma there must be.

And there is a way. All that I’ve done in the past
Is the past. I can’t change it. So I have to choose
To look forward where there’s at least a chance that I
May turn into an innocent kindhearted guy.
That’s a bit of a stretch, but I’ve nothing to lose
In believing that I was never an outcast.

Then what was I? A bastard? A son of a bitch?
Or maybe just a troubled soul with some issues?
What matters now is that now is most important.
Dragging the past into it is something I can’t
Let myself keep on doing. Myself I abuse
When I do that. Besides, it will not make me rich.

Emotional Manipulation

You give up all your power to the universe
When in public you’re seen as a big cry baby.
Not only is it ugly and grosses folks out
Those who regularly tend to piss, moan, and pout
Attract to themselves discord most definitely.
Crying is sometimes seen as profane or much worse.

It’s not that their trustworthiness is in question.
It may be that they’re honest to all whom they know.
Sensing manipulation, though, people react
As if they’re being played. They may even attack
The one lost in emotion. The disgusting flow
From the sinuses is not conducive to fun.

It must be done in private if it must be done –
Not in business and not around people unknown.
Everyone feels like crying every now and then
Yet it is most important for women and men
To keep other people out of their Twilight Zone.
Drama is for professionals. You are not one.

Nobody wants to manage any extra stuff
Either at work or at home or any known place.
People want to get things done and then just relax.
They are not hip to paying theatrical tax
So they may curse your acting but smile in your face.
You may not know when people have had quite enough.
