"Tears on Paper"

Do I mean
The words I write
The harsh realities
Or the suicides

The pain that comes
And always goes
Comes out on paper
Like tears, it flows

How I feel
I let it out
It keeps me going
And calms the shout

I do not plan
On suicide
Behind my poetry
I'll shyly hide

You may think
I'm crazy indeed
You'd never think
I'm a man in need

In need of his wife
And his daughter's smile
I'm missing my family
They've been gone awhile

I didn't give them
The love the need
Now I'm alone
On paper I bleed

I'm hoping soon
They come my way
My family and I
Will be here to stay...
