Poetry detectives have discovered something peculiar about a famous poet, who won awards and who passed away in 2016. The Canadian born poet, Pierre DesRuisseaux has stolen some famous words from some famous people. Some of those writers include Maya Angelou and Tupac Shakur.
"He also has a poem that’s way too similar to Tupac’s “Sometimes I Cry.” DesRuisseaux writes: “When I’m Alone/ Sometimes when I’m alone I cry/ Because I’m alone. / The tears I cry are bitter and burning. / They flow with life, they do not need reason.”
Here’s what Tupac wrote: “Sometimes when I’m alone/ I cry because I’m on my own/ The tears I cry are bitter and warm/ They flow with life but take no form.”
