Tupac Shakur


I Cry


Sometimes when I'm alone
I Cry,
Cause I am on my own.
The tears I cry are bitter and warm.
They flow with life but take no form
I Cry because my heart is torn.
I find it difficult to carry on.
If I had an ear to confide in,
I would cry among my treasured friend,
but who do you know that stops that long,
to help another carry on.
The world moves fast and it would rather pass by.
Then to stop and see what makes one cry,
so painful and sad.
And sometimes...
I Cry
and no one cares about why.

    ..............the poet gives us some reasons why he cries....but the other times, he doesn't say why......a little mystery always makes the poem better..... (Report) Reply

    This poem was written by me SHERLYNN MEHTLAN when I was 15 years old and my mother died in front of me of a overdose, I was able to write my emotions in such a way to relate to others like many have proven me to be right. I sent this poem to ODIS MARIZETTE while he was locked up back in 2004 five years after my moms death, we exchanged poems back and forth for years. I'm kinda flattered by my idol's name was put on my poetry yet I see why, thanks Odie for allowing others to take credit for my stuff. (Report) Reply

    it would be way better without the last two lines... it flows so perfectly thought that the end sounds so choppy (Report) Reply

    Cant believe some of the negative comments. I will say that I am white and find Tupac as a huge inspiration. Tupac achieved more in 25 years than most people would achieve in 3 of his lifetimes. To the people writting the hateful comments maybe u should listen to some of his music and you might learn something. Go do something with your life other than adding more negativity to the world. You may not like him but just know that his words have had a much bigger impact on the world than you ever will. The media portrayed him as something evil just because he was never afraid to tell how the world really is. Anytime somebody tries to make a difference and fights for what he believes in, there will always be people who dont like it. That is why his music got labeled as 'gangster rap' not because he was a bad person. (Report) Reply

    this is honestly one of my favourite poems,
    rest easy ghee;
    and to all them haters, psssht...
    tupac achieved a lot in his short-lived life;
    he changed the way people thought and encouraged them to do more with their lives by relating to the same problems and struggles in which he also encountered,15 years on and his music is still working its magic with the younger generations. so tell me; what have you achieved? (Report) Reply

I want you to know
