Which one makes you cry

Harder

Parenthood or Grey’s Anatomy

Both put in music

during hard scenes.

Both deal with drama

And realities of the

Human condition.

Yet, one shows Aspergers

Which I think is pretty badass

Smart, distinguished, intense.

Most people don’t get it.

Most people don’t get different

When difference meets excellence.

While the other deals with

Heart transplants.

Hardships.

Mental illness doesn’t have a surgery

It’s ongoing.

And a hardship you simply

Have to endure

In madness

Craziness

Loveness

It’s all good

Because it’s rough.

So where do you draw the line

In your tears?

And which waterworks

Make you drown.
