5. Someday I'Ll Cry - Poem by Albert Johnson

Right now it hurts too much to cry.
I can't deal with my pain.
Survival is my current goal,
Forget 'No pain, no gain.'

But someday when I'm stronger
And life is safer, too,
I'll look inside my hurting heart
As best as I can do.

And then the special child
That lives inside of me
Will face the pain, injustice,
And the tears can be set free.

I'll cry for the special boy
Whose childhood was lost
To the effort to survive,
I'll cry for what it cost.

I'll cry for others who like me
Craved love instead of strife.
Yes, in time, someday I'll cry,
For tears belong to life.

    A bleak but saccharine piece that I personally can relate to, about my inability to cry during the countless funerals I've been to, even if the person was very close to me. Sadness, yes, but no tears. I agree with you when you say tears belong to life - a statement that exerts that life cannot only be sustained by joy and happiness. We need to share from the Spools of Happiness and Tragedy to weave our lives together well. A very nice read.
