My Story- It's Ok. - Poem by Nasiphi Poetress Dlangudlangu

I hear someone shouting,
She says, 'stay strong! '

I hear someone else yelling,
He says, 'Brave soldiers do not cry'.

And I hear others whispering,
They say, 'Tears and her? '

I've heard them,
I've seen your pain,
And I've came with a different story.

A story different from those who expect you to be emotionless.
A story different from those who expect you to die inside and yet keep the smile.
And a story different from those who forget that you are a human being.

My story says;
Its ok to cry when it hurts!
Its ok to shake when frightened
And its ok to break when hammered.

Its ok to stay behind doors and cry!
Yes, it's ok when it hurts.
Its ok to feel that pain when you've been hurt,
After all you are human!

Forget about those who say shed a tear not, and listen to my story!
My story suppresses no one,
My story is simple,
My story says, 'IT IS OK! IT IS OK TO CRY WHEN IT HURTS!
CRY BUT GIVE UP NOT...

IT IS OK...
