Condemnation

What exactly have I done?

I’m sure that I have never committed

one single crime,

apart from to let my sadness show.

For that you’ll condemn me,

and I can’t help but wonder

if that says more about you

than me.

It's quite true, because if someone is responsible for the crime of your tears, it says more about them because they are trying to frame you. It's also like if they are happy, then you have to be happy, but life doesn't work like that. Great piece of poetry Hully.

The shocking thing is that it does seem that crying is a crime these days. Even if someone else is the cause of them, they will still blame you. Also if they are happy you have to be happy, or you can only be sad when they are sad. Just seems people are trying to manipulate our tears these days. Great poetry Hully!

Yep! There's all this condemnation of depression, like those that suffer from it are just not trying hard enough at being positive. I'm sick of it - people don't like what I write, I don't make them read it.
Thanks, Dexter.
