It's Only Natural

"Tears begin in the heart,
but some of us deny the heart so often, and for so long,
that when it speaks we hear not one but a hundred sorrows in the heartbreak.
We know that crying is a good and natural thing.
We know that crying isn't a weakness,
but a kind of strength.
the weeping rips us root by tangled root from the earth,
and we crash like fallen trees when we cry."

Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram
