Crying Poems by Teens

Tears that well up, push together, and throw themselves over the rim of your eye can be the result of so many different emotions and situations. Sometimes crying is a healthy release for stress, disappointment, and even anger. Other times, tears fall from sheer frustration or feelings of worthlessness or shame. Such tears fall when a person has been strong for too long and their heart can no longer bear the pain. Crying is a necessary way to cleanse your soul of its suffering. Sometimes, it is the first step to rediscovering happiness.

    I gave up crying a long time ago. No one sees the pain or hurt or even the tears. All they see is a girl who wants to be seen. Not a girl who wants help.
