Being Loud

Some people cry quietly because they have learnt that loud crying brings aggression and attack, not kind words

Some people cry quietly because they know there is no-one to hear them anyway

Some people cry quietly because they are ashamed

Some people cry quietly because they think they are quiet people

Some people cry quietly because they do not think their pain is worthy of noise

Some people cry quietly because they think they must be strong

I am worthy and I am valid.

and it is OK to cry

and it is OK to cry loudly

and it’s OK to cry where people see it

cry visibly if you want to

Because every person has cried at some point.

it is your right to cry loudly if you want to

There is strength in a visible cry

There is pride and power in it’s noise
