By Samantha Thamann, Reading, OH

In a time of misery, I was happy
Now in happiness, I am miserable
Because of words I cannot speak
That rise and rise to the surface
I keep my lips closed
But long more than ever to unlock them
I made a promise that I plan to keep
Although I’d like to scream aloud
I have to lie to those I love
Though my mind races with the truth
All of this brings me misery
But all of this I do for you
I wish that they could know
All of the things I hold inside
I wish that I could tell them
Everything that’s in my mind
Even though they beg and plead
You are my first priority
Because most sayings are always true
Misery loves it’s company
