Maybe they are referring to someone getting down on their knees and crying or begging for their life. Would I do that? I don't know because I have never been in that situation. I hope not, but maybe. I hope that I'm never tested.
Crying because of emotion is different. I cried when my mother died. I cried when my best friend died. I am not ashamed. I lost someone dear to me. I felt a hole in my heart and I cried. I cried when I read a poem at my brothers funeral. I cried for the same reason.
I am not speaking of sobbing, but the tears came and I could not hold them back. I didn't want to hold them back. Yes 2pac, sometimes I cry when I'm alone and sometimes I cry where everyone can see me.
I am not ashamed that I have a heart. I am not ashamed that I cry.
and....a short poem I wrote last year...about crying...
breath won't come
my head spins
vision is blurred
I cry for what
I do not know
written for Carry On Tuuesday, Keith, 2pac and the whole damn world...
