Okay to Cry

When things get rough
and the world tries to beat you down
until you’ve had enough,
it’s okay to cry.
When people are cruel
in words and deed
to enforce another’s rule,
it’s okay to scream.
When you can’t take any more
and you just want an out
through any provided door,
it’s okay to cry.
It’s okay to scream.
And even if you can’t stop,
rise up and stand tall
though your tears continue to fall.
Hold your head up high
and be brave.
Power on,
because you are strong,
even though you feel weak.
It’s going to be okay
if you just carry on.

Prompt: Cry
