Poems about Crying Inside and Feeling Sad

Everybody cries sometimes, and if you don't you should. Crying is a natural way of letting go of pent up emotions. It is sad fact that many children are shamed for crying. Adults who are led to believe that crying is not OK may repress their feeling of sadness. Emotions that are not allowed to release tend to leak out in other areas of their lives. The ability to express our emotions whether alone or in communication to others is necessary for a happy life.

    • By Whitney Fancher
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015

    This is a poem about the different reasons we cry.

    Or your heart starts to break.

  5. 3. I'm Tired

    • By Kristen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    I wrote this poem when I was in 6th grade when I started to fall into depression. As things got worse, I kept changing the poem, and now this is what I have left. I think many people can relate to this.

    I'm tired.
    Tired of the constancy,
    the constancy of judgment.
    Tired of hiding,

    A sister is touched seeing her grown up brother cry like a child.

    I saw my brother cry today.
    He seemed five years old
    It did not seem to me that he was six feet tall.
    He lost a thing he treasured,

  8. 6. In My Mind And My Heart

    My grandpa passed away, and I felt so much sadness yet again. It had been 8 years since the passing of my first son, and these feelings came back again. Wishing we had more time! Every time I think of them, this is what I go through. It's a way to remember them.

    Forgive me if I cry
    But there is nothing else to do
    If only God could have warned me
    That my life would be without you

  9. 7. Let It Rain

    Sometimes we find ourselves at a low point. A point where you realize that you'd just have to release the pain you feel through heartfelt tears. You may be at an age where people mistake crying for weakness, but in reality, people fail to realize how important it is to let go of all negative emotions.
    The poem largely revolves around my own tears and how they resemble pouring 'rain' at my darkest moments.

    Clouds of thunder, pouring rain,
    The hurt I feel, the throbbing pain.
    Droplets trickling down my face.
    Shall rain give me this one embrace?

    This is dedicated to all the young people struggling to feel something other than emptiness or pain.

    Have you ever held in pain to the point where it seemed like you didn't care?
    You could've sworn you were crying,
    But when you went to wipe tears away there was nothing there?

  11. 9. Tear Stained Cheeks And Bloodshot Eyes

    • By Sabrina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    My family and friends used to call me an angel. Not for looks, but for the way I could always help someone out of their troubles, and the way that I could always keep a smile on my face. But the other night I couldn't. I realized that I tried my best to help other people with their problems just because I didn't want to deal with my own. I thought the only way I could tell people that was to write a poem. And this is what I came up with.

    The angel lost her grace,
    As mascara ran down her face.
    She forgot love, remembered hate.
    She no longer had her faith.

  12. 10. The Way In Which We Cry

    • By Arianna
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2020

    Babies and young children will often let out a loud cry, as they seek the attention of their parents. As we grow older, however, we are taught not to cry, and we start believing that we shouldn't bother anyone with our tears. So we'll hold them in, silence them, but eventually, they will still overflow. We can't control it, because sometimes, it is our only resort to show any kind of pain, whether that be physical, emotional, or mental. Our tears are not a sign of weakness but our path to healing.

    Do we cry to heal ourselves?
    Do we cry simply to shed a tear?
    Is it because we just can?
    Or because that certain person isn't here?

  13. 11. Tears, Tears Go Away

    • By Stephany Manfull
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2013

    I was beaten by my alcoholic father as a child and molested by my uncle. No one knows these things except for a few friends and my journal. I'm depressed, and I cut often to get the pain out. I'd hate to hurt my family, so I try my hardest to stay away from suicide, but I think of it daily...that is the story behind my tears.

    Tears, tears go away.
    Why must you come back almost every day?
    You remind me of my pain.
    You remind me of my past.

  18. 16. Forever Stagnant In Our Minds

    • By Rosanna
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2014

    I wrote this during a time of deep depression. This poem was intended for my three siblings and myself, but I feel poems help to conquer the darkness. The abuse that we witnessed our mom (and ourselves) go through has caused long-term depression and suicidal thoughts in all of us. Writing poems helps to relieve the pain and sadness. I hope that anyone who has gone through any kind of abuse can learn to trust and love.

    Like an apple that has fallen from our tree,
    my soul is rotting and I've taken you down with me.
    Deep in the emotions of my misery
    are the feelings that cannot ever seem to be set free.

    I don't know what inspired me to write this poem. I was just writing my emotion.

    But in reality I am dying inside.
    Slowly my corpse keeps getting sicker
