Honestly, Who Can You Tell?

April 16, 2010
Smile because the sun represents something greater
Run because your fears are fearful for a reason
Walk because everything else is moving to fast
Hold back because no one needs to know you're miserable
Hug because everything else is deteriorating
Cry because you can
Carry because you can't let go
Stutter because you're speechless
Cringe because it's unbearable
Fly because running isn't quite cutting it
Scream because no one knows you're gone
Try because you can't give up
Follow because your heart knows best
Write because honestly, who can you tell?

I loved this one!  The format was very interesting and worked perfectly, and this was very original, the last line was my favorite, that and "Fly because running isn't quite cutting it."
