Reasons To Weep - Poem by Monica O'Connor

June 27,2008

Open your eyes and silence your grim mouth.
Your noisy self pity has been drowning everything else out,
I sometimes think you're blinded by yourself.
Keep that mouth closed, can you see her now?
Her and her reasons to weep,
Reasons she hides and stores away, never letting anyone see,
Anyone but you now.
Stay silent,
Its true love's moment to cry,
To bleed, to feel, all for you.
Look at at her and tell me how she hasn't been every word you've spoken,
And how she hasn't loved you more than you've ever loved yourself.
Before you open your mouth,
think of the people who have always been there,
think of all the commodities bowing at your feet,
things people would die to posses.
Think of her and her reasons to weep.
Because her love surpases anything you could imagine, anything you've ever felt.
Keep those eyes open, eventually you'll see.
