The Darkness Inside (The Tears) - Poem by Josiah Hutchison

I hope no one thinks I'm some whiny-assed depressed
emo for all these 'tears' poems. In case you were
wondering, I'm usually talking about how crying over
everything possible and bieng in a constant state of
depression is a BAD thing, I'm not trying to glorify
it or anything. I'm alot like fellow Poemhunter
author Daniel Menear. I don't like whiny-assed emos! .
(BTW, read his poem, 'The Emo Generation', for some
big time laughs.)

What is it,
that causes the tears?
Is it the pain, the sorrow,
the unrelenting fears?

Is it something like that,
or is it something else?
Something deeper, something darker;
something inside ourselves?

These feelings can consume you
and tear you up inside.
If left alone to feed and grow
they'll tear holes that are just too wide.

It can be so difficult
but it's possible that you might
turn your eyes from the darkenss inside
and look back to the light.
