river of my tears


They say grown man ain't supposed to cry but little do they know a storm is brewing. Set up by the destruction of the human tongue the envy of ones mindset makes me want to set fire around me and sit in the untouched middle and smile. When these tears fall its not because I'm weak no, no ha not even close I let these tears fall hoping I can just evaporate with the beads that do so on the edge of my chinstrap shaved beard. As they leave a trail over these cheeks that used to smile so freely now they are stained with the rivers of my tears.

I always say that crying isn't a sign of weakness. It's an opportunity to renew the spirit and mind.

Hi,

It is perfectly okay to cry. Often, people think they are too grown to cry, or become more tough without crying. Releasing makes us feel a little lighter, and we are achknowledging our FEELINGS, which is good. People envy all the time.

I have been through it, but the challenge is to stand strong and not obey anyone if it is not good, meaning to not lower your self-esteem or how you view yourself. You are a child of GOD.

deep here as to many brothers are afraid to shed a tear... nothing wrong with allowing thy emotions, yes self to react in a sad way... more need to be open and gladly praise the man above vocally... what i'm saying u seem to be FREE now, and no longer shall hide behind thy false wall... in summary continue to walk along side the heavenly father, and cry if it needs be...

have a bless day...


sincerely,

Mood: In LOVE with life

Whoever said tears were a sign of weakness is the most unintelligent person to walk the earth. Christ himself shed tears when he walked the earth. (Think back to the account of Lazarus)

In actuality shed tears are a sign of strength. Not being afraid to allow your true and deep emotions to show. For just a moment allowing hurt, fear, sorrow to show. We need to remember that we are mere humans and we were created with emotions. One of the greatest abilities we have is being able to express ourselves, what a beauty of creation we are....and just think...we were created in the image of him so if we express emotion, think of the LOVE and feelings he has...it's awe-inspiring.

Thank you for sharing such a pure and stripped peace with us....

Poetic Love

They say tears are liquid prayers.
It is more of strength to cry than to hold it in.
I think those who say only weak men cry are speaking about themselves.

Tears help us release. Hopefully they'll flow until your face smiles again.

Thanks for sharing~

Crying is a good thing as it purges the emotions. However too much crying can be a bit 'over kill'.
