I cried today.
It had to be the hardest cry I've ever experienced.
I've shed more tears in one sitting before but this was something else.
My soul cried from the deepest depths
My entire body was limp and lifeless
For every tear shed an ounce of my energy was lost
I've never felt so downtrodden and defeated in my life
So much pain that it could hardly escape
I cried because all this time I wanted desperately for someone to pay
And the realization hit that it was me just today
For all the hurt in my life I cried today
Typhani M. Roberson
