Silent misunderstandings …
Words that go unsaid …
When if you only worked things out,
You would find peace instead.

Yet you keep your feelings
Bundled up inside.
There they boil and fester
As you do your best to hide.

Why this need to be closed off?
What is it you fear?
By keeping all your pain balled up
You cut off those you hold most dear.

There’s not a feeling you can have
That others don’t as well.
So universal are your thoughts,
Yet these you fear to tell.

Recognize your sameness.
Be willing just to share.
And you will find you’re not alone.
So many truly care.
