~"Don't cry"~

"Don't cry" they tell you
They do not understand

They are
_ _ mindless zombies
_ _ emotionless robots
_ _ afraid of feelings
_ _ afraid to let go
_ _ _ _ to lose control

All they care about
_ _ Formal Habits
_ _ Honour Roll
They exist
_ _ in their own 'perfect' little worlds
_ _ oblivious to others' needs
_ _ _ _ the 'low-lifes'

They have
_ _ _ _ many so-called friends
They realize not
_ _ that marks aren't everything
They do not stop to think
_ _ nor attempt to understand
_ _ _ _ that others may have issues
_ _ _ _ that must take first priority
