It’s not pretty
When I cry
People get almost
as embarrassed
as I
The one
With red eyes
And runny nose
And flushed skin
It’s not pretty
When I cry
But it is
Ugly and pretty
Cannot mix
But beauty
And ugly
Somehow do
Goes beyond
To what’s inside
When what’s inside
Must come out
It is beautiful
Feelings expressed
That must be
I don’t like to cry
But I would rather cry
Then whine
