DO THEY CRY?
Tree's shedding their leaves in the fall
Flowing to the ground as though they were tears falling
Do they cry?
An old dog lying on the porch
Watching the master who never has time anymore
Eyes matt up
Do they cry?
A teenager who has to be tough, look tough to survive
To make it through the challenge of just being a kid, alone
Do they cry?
The boss that no one likes, everyone talks about
When they are all alone to feel the shun, and the loneliness
Do they cry?
The soldier fighting for the cause in a distant land
Missing home, wants to be here, but alone there in the darkness
Do they cry?
Tears show many emotions, the heart feels pain
The hands shake, the feelings are on edge
You strike back by hurting someone who didn't do anything to you
A convenient way to vent to the first person you come in contact with
When the moment is over, and you have gone, they are alone
Do they cry?

Wow, this makes me want to cry myself. I love the perceptiveness of it though. Great work ;)
