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.

Without question, it was the men from NIMH sent to find the super-intelligent rats. Meanwhile, at the Brisby home, the sound of giggling can be heard. The Brisby's are gathered outside the bedroom window, while Timothy is inside looking out. Teresa is wrapping bandages around her mother's hands, whilst Popeye wraps a bandage to cover the bruise on Logan's head*
Timothy: Momma, I'm tired of bed, I want to get up!
Mrs. Brisby: Well, you're not getting up.

Popeye: Best to be safes than sorrys, little bucko. *chuckles, but accidentally tightens the bandage*

Logan: So how is this plan supposed to work?
Justin: Sometimes, when we have a large project that takes us into the open, Mr. Ages makes up a sleeping powder to give to Dragon.
Mrs. Brisby: How do you get him to take it?
Popeye: I doubts "please" is goings to help.
Justin: Someone must go into the farmhouse kitchen and put it in his dish. The only way into the kitchen is through a tiny hole in the floor. Ages tried it yesterday. That's how he broke…

Popeye: *groggily* Hey Logans, tell the neighbas to turn down the lawnmowers. It's too early.

The aliens didn't stop firing at them, but with River no longer giving them covering fire, the bad guys were getting bold, advancing out from behind the barrels and bales that littered the smuggler's ship cluttered hallways.
They all ducked back behind the gold statue of "Freedom" which they had traced to this ship from the planet Kantaro, where it had been stolen. The smugglers were unwilling to risk melting the precious metal, which was the only thing keeping them safe at the moment.

Leap over a crystal stream,
Pass the golden furred deer,
