WE CRY


We are funny beings

When we exult, we cry. Tears of happiness


When we are sad, we cry. Tears of depression


When we lose someone or something special, we cry. Tears of loss

When we get something precious back, we cry. Tears of relief


We cry at the betrayal of friends. Tears of hurt

We cry at the benevolence of enemies. Tears of astonishment

We cry at poverty around us. Tears of hopelessness

We cry that we might never achieve that which the rich have. Tears of want


We cry in pain. We cry in joy

Such subtleties of human nature. Cryptic. Mysterious. Unfathomable. Sure makes me wanna laugh

  2. And sometimes we laugh to keep from crying - might as well, none of it makes any sense anyhow.
