Sometimes I Cry

Sometimes I Cry 

Sometimes when I'm alone I cry
for this pain to be gone 
I cry for all of us in our home 
In the day I act as if everything 
Is going to be just fine
I am strong and 
can't be no other dived family of six with no love 
in our home I had to be strong
even while I was only a little one
but now I am on my own
I ran from home and my life was already 
cold of a nine year old 
The tears I cry are bitter and warm 
They flow with life but take no form 
I ''Cry'' because my heart is torn
I find it difficult to carry on another load, 
I had no place to call my own
No place to call home 
If I had an ear to confide in I would be knocking 
at that ones door I would start to cry
among my treasured friend 
but who do you know that stops that long
to help another carry on? 
I walked in the dark most of my life why other 
kept looking down more on my life
the world moves fast and it would rather pass me by
with no love in mind
they never stop and see what makes one cry's 
So painful and sad 
is they way my life has always been 
but now I am older my mind and body and soul 
reawaken to brighter days
of the truth that set me free 
Of the darken way of life
even though I will have a lot to learn
Who to trust and 
who to love for now I just need to keep my heart 
on God that taken hold of a lost soul
and made it new gain. 

Poetic Judy Emery 1983
