remember

day two of weekend snowstormsometimes i tell my friends that some movies make me cry. they ask which, i answer and sometimes they laugh, they agree, or they ask me why.

when was the last time you cried
when was the last time you cried because you were sad, your heart was hurting
when was the last time you cried because you were lonely as you tried to find someone in a crowded room
when was the last time you cried because you were angry, your face is so red from screaming 
when was the last time you cried because you were so touched by the words youre reading
when was the last time you cried because you were so happy, you couldnt even say a thing
when was the last time you cried because you were so entertained by the memories youre recalling

dont forget
always remember
the moments when you cried
the reasons why you cried
the people who watched you cry
the people who saw you cry
you are who you are because of these


always remember that other people cry
remember why they cried
you dont have to hurt to learn.

dont be afraid to cry. 
tears are just emotions that overflow from your heart out through your eyes. 
for people to see and to show that we are all human.


i pressed play and this is what i heard.
24 oceans; 24 skies; 24 failures; 24tries
24 find me; in 24th place; 24 drop outs; at the end of the day
life is not what i thought it was 24 hours ago
still im singing spirit take me up in arms with you
and im not who i thought i was 24 hours ago
...
i want to see miracles, see the world change
wrestles the angel, for more than a name
for more than a feeling
for more than a cause
-switchfoot; twenty four
