Weakness - Poem by Avani Popat

Don’t Cry! those tears are your weakness,
They show the world how weak you are,
They reflect your pain, your expectation from them,
Your dependence on them,
They show how much you need others, their support, presence, love and affection,
All too abstract a words
Don’t! Never cry
They show the world what you are
Which the world shouldn’t come to know.
Don’t never cry,
Because you always have to be strong,
You should never display your emotions,
Emotions are a proof of you being weak
In short never cry because the world wants you to be something you are not
Don’t cry because the world doesn’t want to see the truth
Don’t cry because the world is too weak to face the truth
Don’t………..never cry
Run away from everything, your feelings
Your emotions, your love for others, everything,
Be that weak but don’t cry it shows your weakness
Be something that is not you at all, but don’t display your feelings,

What are emotions? Your tears display them.
Only humans can have that abstract thing.
But why are you crying?
Those tears display that you are not lifeless.


Cry. Whenever you want to.
Please cry.
Display your emotions,
Sign of you being a human.
Actually the world which perceives them as a sign of weaknes is too weak to understand them, too weak to accept the truth, it needs help, it needs you.
Please help them.
Please be human.
Theres nothing wrong in it dear.
Its OK.
Trust me.
Please cry.
