Have you been frustrated lately, especially when you see all your world closing down on you, don’t cry, for tomorrow will be better. It’s in your hands. Don’t cry, do something.
Enjoy the poem ‘Don’t Cry‘ — by D. H. Phoenix
Don’t cry for what’s gone Tears dropping aimlessly Would always fall silently Deep into the earless night There are many chances to mourn But only one to seize You will outlive many storms All it takes is one fine breeze Only one slim chance to fight I’d take it, half blind, a step Toward a new land, a new dawn Where the sun is but one thousand And every man gets to choose his sun Don’t say the deed is done There are a few gasps of breath left Spend them not on what you did not get Your biggest prize may still lie ahead To untangle you feet from the mud To take the next tinily big step To brush your teeth one more time Perchance today you’ll need to shine A light well covered but never spent The dead days will never hear your wails Did you not hear me? They’re dead! You never walk, you’ll never have a journey No drums to sound you glory; no winter tales You bail on your destiny Destiny never bails. You have eyes to see me You have ears to hear You have brains to feel me You feel me, there goes a tear Don’t waste your tears on earless nights The world, your chance, your glory awaits Not on these papers you read by me But out there on the road ahead. Instead of sitting around listening to me You could have done anything, instead.
