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.

Back in Nottingham, Prince John was furious upon discovering that he had been tricked, and when he arrived at Nottingham he wanted revenge. Rewards were posted for the capture of the thieves, but of course, the group remained free.
"Well even though Prince John offered a reward for the capture of Robin Hood, that sure rogue kept on robbing the rich to feed the poor, and blame me if it's a good thing he did, because with the taxes on all the poor folks of Nottingham were starving to death." Souldude said as he looked over at a bunch of poor people struggling to live, and getting what little food they could from their families since they were placed in stockades for being considered tax dodgers.
