Why do Women Cry ?

I believe that the one who has been blessed with the power to give birth to a new life, can be anything but weak. Just because their tears can flow easily, one cannot say that women are weak, or they can easily give in. The reason behind those precious drops of water rolling out like pearls, have the power to smoothen strained emotions and thus conceal a big reason behind their prompt nature ...and the reason is this.....
A woman is possessive about her emotions, though generous when comes to nurturing them. She nurtures them all her life with loads of love and care. That is why whenever she has to let go of them, be it in the case of extreme joy or sorrow, her emotions roll of her eyes in the form of tiny pearly drops known as tears.

I nurture life in my womb,
and emotions reside in my heart,
though well aware of the ways of the world,
I have a secret abode thats full of love,

You might think its my weakness, to be at the brink of tears,
But what looks like a tear to you,
Is but a drop of emotion, that I had nurtured with care,

I reap my emotions with my soul,
and grow them on insurmountable love,
but when its time to let go,
for me it becomes a bit tough,

My tear is not my weakness,
Its but a part of me,
Its my love that flows out,
for those in whom I believe.

Wonderful poem sana... Beautifully expressed!

But I don't think crying is a weakness or that only women cry. To think that tear drops are of the weak is only, I think, a weakness. Forgiveness, caring and love are of the brave and courageous :-)

i dont think crying is a weakness.. showing your emotions takes a lot of courage and women have it. though men are too proud to show it, they too feel the same

And brilliant writing..
take care :-)

You are a fantastic writer with great creative ability. You think so beautifully and so deeply and present it so amazingly.

There is one more point you missed. I know you are a woman. So you know better what you are talking about.

I have seen women crying or rather shedding tears when they are happy. How is that? I am unable to understand this strange behavior.

After seeing people like Indira Gandhi, Arundathi Roy, Kiran Bedi, Kiran Mazumdar, Sania Mirza, Indra Nooyi etc., I don’t think women are weak.

Any one who thinks women are weak is in a big trouble:)

Have a wonderful day:)

A beautiful acknowledgment of the strength in nurturing that is peculiarly female.

Thanks Shadow, Joseph and San for your wonderfully warm comments.
Yes Joseph, women cry when they are happy because they are passionate beings, whatever they do, they do it with a lot of passion and give their all to it, and when the results are great their heart takes a sign of relief and cries out of happiness:)Its complex but true!
