Bottle It Up

Bottle it up.
Keep everything in.
You’ll still explode in the end.

Start digging that hole.
Bury it deep.
In the end, you’ll still lose sleep.

Hold back all your thoughts.
Don’t let them escape.
In a while, you’ll rip that tape.

Just shrug your shoulders.
Don’t deal with your fear.
Brush off an escaping tear.

Keep out the fresh air.
Don’t try to breath.
If you do, the pain might leave.

Turn your head away.
Close your eyes tight.
You don’t want to see the light.

Walk down all those stairs.
Act like it’s all fine.
You’ll still trip when you walk that line.

Smile when you get hurt.
Don’t let anyone know
That- inside- your spirits are low.
