Keep it all locked inside, in another why confide?

Friends offer their ears, but they’ll never understand your fears.

The torment we carry rips us apart, why did we give it a chance to start?

Questions answered with misery, so fake smiles and hidden tears write our history.

Tomorrows a new day but the pain remains the same, emotions are a twisted game.

Emotional beings afraid to expose emotion, sinking slowly in our social image of an ocean.

In time of need we call one another weak, planting the seed to teach us not to speak.

So with no voice we scream,  searching for sleep yet afraid to dream.

Till one day we wake up with new eyes, and we no longer miss the goodbyes.
