The DNA of My Soul

I hate when 

someone tells me 

"don't be sad".


I can't help it;

it's what I AM,

it's WHO I am.


It's like telling me 

to stop being human.


It's as much 

a part of of me as 

my eye color 

or hair color.


It's like my skin;

tears are like freckles,

permanently attached to me.


I can't change something

so ingrained in who I am,

the DNA of my soul.
