Oh how i would like to cry,
just simply letting my tears flow.
But they don't let me even try,
crying away regrets and sorrow.
It's something you can't avert.
Be a man, they used to say
don't show that you're hurt.
It hurts, when does it go away?
Depressing thoughts blurring my mind.
Imagining things that aren't real.
I'm slowly turning deaf and blind.
Is this something i need to conceal?
So i try this again today,
holding up this mask of deceipt.
True feelings fade astray,
coming so close to another defeat.
Still i keep holding on,
I have more stuff to write.
Giving all of me until i'm gone.
Don't worry you will be alright.
