it’s okay to cry

by T. B., 14

It’s okay to cry.

It’s okay because you are not hurting anyone.

You are letting out your emotions.

You are letting your pain go away.

You are letting the negative vibes out.

Some people will say “don’t cry.”

They will think you are weak.

But if you don’t cry, you will become weaker.

You will walk everywhere you go holding back the tears.

The tears may turn into anger and you might boil up.

So it’s best you get to cry now before it becomes worse.
