This is more of a personal poem that not only me, but we all go through. One thing I learned is that crying does show that we are weak, but shows that we are human and have a heart like anybody else.

They cry silently at night

So silent that no one can hear them

Not even theirselves for that matter

They cry cause the walls never stop shouting

They cry cause I can't help the ones I care most about

They cry over regrets and broken promises

They cry for the people who fight to hold back their tears

When they know they just want to let it all out

Most of all...they cry cause they feel powerless

Once I looked into someones life throught their eyes

I saw what they saw

I felt what they felt...Yet

No matter how much I understand them

No matter how much we understand each other

We still feel helpless at times

But I say continue to be there for that person

Let them know your someone they can run to

Be that shoulder for them to cry on if need be

Cause in the end your helping them more than you know

Family, friends, or someone who needs to be touched

Tell them to dry their tears

For they will never be alone

You will always be right there

Very emotional piece, the part that stuck out to me was, "They cry because the walls won't stop shouting"...well said and well put together.

Amazing! very good... I do prefer poems that rhyme though... But this one being one that does not rhyme was very good! I like the format and the emotion that flows through it! If you could check out my poetry and my lyrics I would appreciate it.-
