James Kavanaugh: "I Laugh and Cry with the Same Eyes"











I laugh and cry with the same eyes,
Love and hate with the same heart.
I feel my rage and my gentleness,
My sanity and suicide.
When I hide my anger, my joy doesn't seem real.
When I hide my fear, my strength is a fraud.
If I only laugh, I leave no place for your pain.
If I only shout, I leave no place for your tenderness.
I want to be all of myself,
So you can be all of yourself,
And together we can be whole.



"I Laugh and Cry with the Same Eyes" by James Kavanaugh. No other bibliographic information available.
