Why Do I Cry?

Why Do I Cry?

written by: Nazam Riar

 

Oh! You cry to release your pain
that to me is such a platitude!
I cry to reveal my love for you
and not just to complain
I cry when this world’s beauty overflows
tantalizes my soul and every vein
I cry when the sheer innocence on a child’s face
rinses off my futile vain
I cry when a real human
manifests motherly affection without any price
I cry when the burning desire in your eyes
sets my body aflame
I cry in joy and ecstasy too
and not just for reasons plain!
I cry not when I feel weak
but when I have played strong for too long!
