Sometimes, It's Okay To CrySometimes, it's okay to cry.Sometimes, It's Okay To Cry1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's okay to let the world see your tears.
Sometimes, it's okay to be angry.
But the hardest is to be angry at the right time, for the right reason.
Sometimes, it's okay to let your emotions show.
Because you've been strong for too long.
Sometimes, things can shatter you permanently
But you've got to pick up the pieces and mend them back together again.
You can't stay broken forever.
Just because it's okay to cry,
Doesn't mean that you should live your life in tears.
It doesn't mean that you have to be weak.
The hardest part is telling people that you're 'not okay'.
The hardest part is telling people that you 'need help'.
Because sometimes, it's okay to not be strong.
Void.Pain like hell and death itself was always there. But it wasn’t from physical wounds. It was from horrible memories and the terrible deepening feeling of absolute aloneness. There was no escaping. Not for me. I was ever tortured by my past, and by the life I was even now living. I needed someone to share my pain because the burden was almost too much for me to bear. But as always I am a survivor. I hid my tears behind a twisted smirk and a sharp tongue. I held myself up, bowing to no man.Void.1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
But achievements never fill the place of a companion.
Deeds you’ve done- you can’t hold a conversation with them. Even in my greatness I was empty. Empty of love. And did I ever say my achievements and deeds were good ones? No. I did not. They were the opposite. If one does not know love one cannot find or see the good- and most definitely you cannot act out the good. So I didn’t. My hands were soaked with the blood of many.

*Logan, Littlefoot and the other baby dinosaurs were trudging through a sandy region, a place where bits of ash fall from the sky. They hadn't stopped walking ever since their last encounter with Sharptooth and the Dinosaurs were getting tired, the smaller ones resorting to riding on Littlefoot's back for the rest of the journey*
Narrator: Littlefoot had been wrong about the Sharptooth, but the others followed. Their only hope was to reach the Great Valley and Littlefoot, alone, knew the way.
*The Dinosaurs now were struggling to catch their breath as they now climbed a rocky region cliffside. Logan knew of the ash around the area. He took his shirt collar and placed it over his mouth and nose to keep the ash away*
Logan: Try not to breath too much, guys. There's volcanic ash everywhere!
Littlefoot: Come on. Get up. We're going the right way. We got to keep moving up. Oh you can't quit now. What if the Great Valley is just over the top of these rocks?

*The scene is a swirl of blue mist-like clouds swarming all around the area. Soon, a batch of smoke waves around forming a shape before the screen until words are formed*
"Logan Meets The Pagemaster"
*Soon the words are wiped off as a series of shapes are formed: From a pirate ship, to a foreboding looking manor as a wolf howls in the background, followed by a fearsome dragon blowing a puff of smoke towards a mystery figure armed with a sword and shield. Seemingly unrelated these cloud formations and yet to some it may appear to be a foreshadow of events soon to pass. A flash of light crashes in the background, followed by the booming roll of thunder and lightning*
*A boy awakens from a crash of light, a boy with blond hair, who picks up his flashlight shining it around his room. Looking around, there are various signs indicating many dangerous hazards: "No Smoking" and "High Voltage" being the few of them. For these signs belonged to a young boy named Richard Tyler, the bo

*Darkness, a void of black where all around was an absence of light. Soft breathing could be heard inside this place, as light slowly shown and an eye struggles to open up. It looks up to see that it is lying on it's back, as he slowly lifts his back and breathes a deep sigh. He turns all around to notice other figures in the area, all of them out cold. There was a man dressed in an old fashion sailor's uniform muttering in his sleep and a human-like rat in Renaissance clothes swishing his tail side-to-side. The viewer then slowly turns to the other side where a night elf rests with it's back along some wall while a Snow Leopard lies curled in his lap and near them was a white robot with the figure of a horse with a cowboy hat knelt down covering it's eyelids matching it's western attire. The figure lifts a hand to his head, feels glasses over his brow, and gently lifts them down as the room now appeared faded. For this would turn out to be the leader of this motley crew of ex

A strange figure unlike any this particular ocean has ever had in it’s ecosystem is thrashing about in the water, waving it’s arms in every direction, as if this creature was suddenly in shocked being introduced to this strange environment. This was no ordinary sea creature amongst an entire ecosystem, for it came down in the shape of an anthropomorphic white lion with antlers sticking out at the top of his mane, a chiseled-from-stone chest without any garbs, talons for hands, a blue watch with a red button clasped on his right arm, a black-leather belt around his waist holding his signature sword, and the lower half of his body replaced with a blue fish-like tail, though the figure was too busy thrashing and gasping for air to notice.
