Tupac - "sometimes I cry"

This is one of the five short story that we have to try and complete in English, the same things apply to the Alicia keys story, read and complete questions give my our teacher.
Sometimes I cry
By Tupac Shakur

Sometimes when I’m alone
I cry because I’m on my own
The tears I cry R bitter and warm
They flow with life but take no form
I cry because my heart is torn
And I find it difficult 2 carry on
The world moves fast and it would rather pass u by
Than 2 stop and c what makes u cry
It’s painful and sad and sometimes I cry
And no one cares about why.
