Hidden Truth

Hidden Truth

The truth is not told 
from the way I look
cause inside my head
confusion's a cook.

It's boiling, steaming
and scattered all around
It's sizzling, bubbling
and no peace found.

It's questions unanswered
and fearing to ask
It's truths to tell
but too hard a task.

It's words unsaid
in fear of the tongue
and smiles to share
inside deep down.

It's feelings to reveal
direct from the heart
and anger to let go
like a piercing dart.

It's all these things
locked up inside
fearing to leave
the place they hide.

Dedicated to all those quiet people who keep there feelings locked up inside."I know how
you feel" Maryam*
