Today I Allowed Myself to Cry

Liliana Kohann

Today I allowed myself to cry.
I don’t have to be embarrassed of my tears.
I don’t need to justify my reasons.
And oh, how good it feels.

I let them fall as they come,
As the cloud allows the rain,
​And I feel their heaviness flowing out
As they carry out my pain.

How good it feels to cry,
And to know that it is my right,
After all, it’s the only way
For my sorrow to be truly out;

For my pain to be resolved,
For my mind to become clear.
If Nature never let the rain fall
How would the clouds disappear?
