Thoughts and Quotes

Why Do We Cry Alone?

I came into the world crying

Crying was my first words

Crying I called you and crying I hugged you

But today, I am afraid to cry in front of you

Oh! Why do I cry alone?


I don’t laugh alone

I don’t celebrate alone

I don’t holiday alone

Then, why do I have to cry alone?


Crying is important

Crying is healthy

Crying is natural

Then why do I cry alone?


You cry

She cries

He cries

We all cry

But why do we all cry alone?


Why do we feel judged when we cry?

Why do we feel weak when tears flow down our cheeks?

Why is it important to always show we are happy?

Why can’t I cry with you? Why do I have to cry alone?


When we know joy and sadness are equal parts of life

When I know I am strong in not hiding my emotions but letting them flow

When you already love me for who I am

Then why should I cry alone?


By crying in front of you, I am not blaming you for my sadness

By wetting your shirt with my tears, I am not asking you for answers

By sharing my problem with you, I am not transferring my burden on you

Then why should I cry alone?


I cry because for that moment I am too full

I cry because I just need to talk and let go

I cry because, sometimes, I just don’t know what else I can do

I do not want to cry alone


Like I want to share my  joy

I want to share my sorrows too

For if I don’t, then I have only shared half of me

And if you don’t, then you have only shared half of you

Why do we want to be happy sharing halves, when we can share our full?

Why do we want to cry alone?


I decide to talk about me in whole, my joys, my fears and my sorrow

I do not feel weak sharing my worries because I know they worry you too

I do not feel shameful talking about my weaknesses because I know you have yours too

I decide I do not want to cry alone

How about you?
