Not Without Reason - Poem by Manny Negron

-Do you ever cry without reason? -
-The world around me cares not for my emotions-
-I’m hardly allowed to have any…
…but that’s no reason to cry-

-I walk in solitude,
For I have not yet found a faithful friend…
…is that a good reason to cry? -

-A first love takes a sharp turn to bitter heartache-
-There’s no literal pain greater than a shattered heart…
…isn’t that reason enough? -

-What is reason to cry? -
-I have yet to figure that out, but I do know one thing:
Although my heart drowns in a sea of its own tears, -
-I never cry without reason-
