N*ggas Cry Too

by Pinkkkblade 2 years ago in slam poetry
Report Story

My tears matter.

I call them for help

But they won’t listen

It’s not a white thing

I always say

We can get it too

You’re just doing it for attention

But I’m not


What are you sad about?

You don’t have to pay bills

I have no motivation anymore

You’re so ungrateful

There’s people who have it worse than you

Back in my day we didn’t have kids with depression

Your generation is so weak

I don’t want to be here anymore

You’re so selfish for wanting to take your life

Okay Goodbye

Wait, I didn’t mean what I said

I actually care

I’ve should’ve listened

Why didn’t I see the signs?

I wish I can start all over

This is my fault

I can never get you back
