Shedding tears is part of human emotional package.
And most time we shed tears in response of an emotional state.
But do we always cry when in pain?
Can we cry because we are happy?

Life,we all know it's just like a series,
Sometimes happy episodes,
Other times sad episodes,
That's what life is like,
But to some of us,
Life is just a series of pain..

Have you ever stopped trying,
Then you just start crying?
Have you ever had a family,
But you wished to belong to the streets?
Have you ever been rich,
But you just crave to be a poor beggar?

Begging for life,not to live in hell
To be held and protected
Not to keep being broken
Childhood abuse,molestation,
At the age of 12 years,
After papa left us,

This is my story
Tears of pain
