Invisible Pains

December 24, 2007
By Sarah Stewart, Ottawa, ZZ

Emotions conspiring against me,
For silent traumas no one else can see,
Afraid of the unknown,
Afraid of being home,
Afraid of being known.

Fight back my feelings,
For fear of my thoughts revealing,
I refuse to cry,
I refuse to try,
But I refuse to die.

Choke back my admit,
To the crimes I didn't commit,
I can't let anyone know,
I can't let it show,
I can't just go.
