why it’s okay to cry (day fourteen)

why it’s okay to cry


because we’re human

and we possess the ability to do so


if it was not natural for us to do this

we would not have been given eyes to see

ears to hear

and a heart to react to everything around us


it’s healthy


like a river

we flow


and like a river

it hurts to hold it back


tear down the dams you’ve created for yourself

out of fear of exposure


out of pride

and fear of appeared weakness


especially if you are trying so hard to be strong for everyone


they are uncomfortable to wear

and constantly leak anyway


and do nothing to hide the emotions that everyone can see


you wear it well

but only if you allow it
