Treasure Island

James Grayson

(5th July 1988 / Manchester, England)

I Cry


I cry.
Does this mean
I’m weak?
Does this mean
I have admitted
Defeat?
No!
I cry.
I cry because
I feel.
I cry because
All I am is
Real.

You cry
Yet you hide
Your tears.
You cry
Silent weeps nobody
Hears.
I pity the man
Who cries alone.
I cry to a friend
And my strength
Has grown.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
