Don't Cry (From JUST ME 2014)


Don’t Cry

Don’t cry
Stop crying
Cry-baby -
cruelly
carelessly
callously,
not kindly.
A reprimand
a command
in every syllable.

Dry your eyes
Don’t be silly
Nothing to cry about.

Waiting tears are silenced,
left unshed 
to calcify 
and turn 
my woman’s heart 
to stone.
A child’s inheritance!
