I've heard many times that, "men aren't suppose to cry." But men are human beings, amoung other things. Some people catch you crying they ask, why are you crying. If you laugh too much they say, "you think every thing is funny." I feel that laughing and crying can be put into the personal category. What makes one person laugh, another might not see it as being funny and vice versa.

One extreme to another,
oh why bother?
Why cry,
hold it in, defy?
Laughing is easier,
maybe it's all a teaser.

Just a cover up,
for a mean life gone corrupt.
Smiling faces,
show no traces
of the evils that lurk within.
We were born into
this life of sin.

Sad people laugh,
happy people cry.
I dare you to defy.
This dilemma will last
until the day we die.
even a bigger reason,
to enjoy
a sunshine season.
Then sat and cry,
if you learned to defy.
Tears of joy,
instead of letting life
totally destroy.

Hi Grady, I enjoyed reading this. Is very true, too. It's certainly a good one. There's just enough rhyme in there to make great.

A novel for young adults... or precocious teenagers. This visionary (romantic) fiction will enchant all who are young at heart. A bedtime story about a Boy Coming of Age...
