Cry Tough

-

My grandfather once told me

to cry tough

if you cry at all.

-

Cry for the loss of mortality.

Cry for the loss of awe.

If you cry at all.

-

Cry for a healthy birth.

Cry for a noble death.

-

Don't let them catch you.

Cry tough

if the tears must fall.

-

Cry for a righteous act.

Cry for a brave demeanor.

-

Don't let them catch you

If the tears must fall.
