Let It Out:

You're afraid of what

The world will think

If you just scream out

In frustration.

You don't want the sympathetic

Stares if you start to cry

Out of nowhere.

You don't want to chance

The odd looks you'll get

If you burst out laughing

Even though nothing funny happened.

You don't want to be laughed at

For staring at nothing in awe.

You're afraid to feel joy

While nobody else can.

You don't want to feel the pain

That will cause someone else to gain.

So you just close off your heart,

And bottle up your emotions.

Put on your mask,

Ready to go.

You don't want to face this world

Full skepticism, horror, and hate.

But in the end you have to do what's best

So you choose to just

Let it out.
