love knows not its own depth till the hour of seperation by kahlil gibran


Why do you feel the need to hide?
Just stand tall and defend your pride
They’re coming now, open your eyes
Don’t worry I’ll be by your side

Scared to show what’s on the inside
Why do you feel the need to hide?
They’ll take your weakness as a sign
Forcing you till you have complied

This does not mean you go alone
You must yield to all the unknown
Why do you feel the need to hide?
For all the bravery you’ve shown

The world will know that you have tried
I’ll leave out the part where you cried
You died in battle, you are free
Why do you feel the need to hide?
