"Secretly we're all a little more absurd than we make ourselves out to be"-- J.K. Rowling.


In a world where we all long for freedom
Why do we clip our own wings?
Why do we stay on the ground
In fear of fragile, vulnerable things?

We hide it,
We hide it,
Oh, we hide it so well.

All the pain
All the heartache
All the secrets we never tell.

Our lives are so full
Of unspoken promises
And of whispers no one hears
Of quiet glances,
Wasted chances
And biting, silent fears

If only we could say
What is written in our hearts
Have the strength to be ourselves
And not just actors playing parts

If only we could admit
What we always try to hide
Then maybe
Just maybe
We’d stop feeling
So broken inside

Let me just say, you are an absolutely amazing writer. I think that both of your poems up are so very, very beautiful. I just want to read more and more and never stop. This was very nice to read.. I really like it. It made me think deeper than the surface of the poem. The way you word and rhyme is so amazing. Great job!
