There's a human trait
we oft try to hide
that's not letting out
what we harbor inside

Emotions stay hidden
so as we not appear weak
our words become guarded
with those that we speak

We want to look strong
appear as we're stable
regardless of cost
so we don't garner a label

That label unstable
bringing other folk's jeers
delivering to us
one of our most basic fears

That lack of acceptance
those friends who will leave
bringing us heartache
is what we believe

It's this lying to self
we must always avoid
as we cripple our hearts
without emotions deployed
