I Seldom Cry

See me cry when I’m overjoyed
See me cry when I’m so hurt
Because you’ll never see me cry on ordinary situations…

I cried when I lost a lover who I loved so much
I cried when my grandmother passed away
I cried when I failed a major subject in college
You’ll never see me cry on ordinary situations

I cried when I regained my faith in the Lord
I cried when I saw an old friend
I cried when I saw my mother back from a long seminar
You’ll never see me cry on ordinary situations

I am tough, as they say
A soldier, a survivor, a fighter; so brave
But I also cry when things are hurting so much
I cry when things are beyond what I can bear

Thanks for all the people who cry with me
And also for those who cry for me
I want to say this, crying is not being weak
It’s acknowledging my emotions; it’s being real
