Release (English Sonnet)
There was something about his eyes
Like sadness crept in through his veins
Made home of his heart where it’d hide
Clouds of anger that swelled of rains.
Some sullen soul hid beneath his weak grin
Told a deep truth his words never could.
Despite the long hairs that covered his chin
The child within never cried when he should.
All his life he was full of pride
Until his sad eyes saw the girl
All his life he’d kept it inside
This girl buried his fear, changed his world
She held his large hand, never asking why
She cradled his head, “Its okay to cry.”
