I Cry - Poem by Tupac Shakur

Sometimes when I'm alone
I Cry,
Cause I am on my own.
The tears I cry are bitter and warm.
They flow with life but take no form
I Cry because my heart is torn.
I find it difficult to carry on.
If I had an ear to confide in,
I would cry among my treasured friend,
but who do you know that stops that long,
to help another carry on.
The world moves fast and it would rather pass by.
Then to stop and see what makes one cry,
so painful and sad.
And sometimes...
I Cry
and no one cares about why.

    ..............the poet gives us some reasons why he cries....but the other times, he doesn't say why......a little mystery always makes the poem better..... (Report) Reply

    This poem was written by me SHERLYNN MEHTLAN when I was 15 years old and my mother died in front of me of a overdose, I was able to write my emotions in such a way to relate to others like many have proven me to be right. I sent this poem to ODIS MARIZETTE while he was locked up back in 2004 five years after my moms death, we exchanged poems back and forth for years. I'm kinda flattered by my idol's name was put on my poetry yet I see why, thanks Odie for allowing others to take credit for my stuff. (Report) Reply

    it would be way better without the last two lines... it flows so perfectly thought that the end sounds so choppy (Report) Reply

    For one I think this is a inspiration poem.I love tupac la la love tupac and for people to say negative comment on this poem it make me mad because you dont even know or understand what the poem mean's.i think for you dumb people out there who have never even listen to any of his music or never felt his pain need to sit down and look at there self cause there might be a little self hate! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! .And for all you Tupac hater go kill your self already and stop hateing on him and yourself.R.I.P TUPAC! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
