    Pt#2, But my question to you is how will anyone ever know if you are hurting if you don't share your tears with someone who will understand that can give you the support when you are having those kinds of feelings, Ty for sharing this poem. I am sure many people can relate to this poem of yours as much as I have today.Dean

    Part # 1, Destiny it is okay to cry believe me I am a grown man and I have cried and some times it helps to break down that wall and let it all flow because it will make you feel better after awhile, and sure you can fake your smile so no one can see how bad you are hurting

    Wow, Destiny! Guess there are many people who use smiles and happy greetings as defense mechanisms. Awesome poem. Love, Carolyn

    A great write Destiny. All of your work is that I've read so far. Sorry that I don't comment on every one I read. I just get so engrossed reading the work of others that I often forget to comment. Just want you to know that I appreciate the comments you send my way and that I do acknowledge and read your work. You are truly brilliant. theKidster, Billy

    Sounds like your boyfriend doesn't understand that emotions can be bottled up because of upbringing. I hope he reads your poem with the emotion you bring to it.

    Wow there is much sensible emotion here, I don't know how i would feel if my mom were ever to write something like that, I would indeed be hurt, .... we all have our shield I've always worn my fake smile, it's weird how people wouldn't even understand there's just some insecurity about me. Much love, Royal

    Very well expressed. Excellent poem. I have some experience with people who hold in their emotions - especially sadness and grief - using a strong wall as a coping mechanism. Just a cautionary note for you is all. And did I mention it's a great poem? Tony

    Wow. Beautiful and powerful. So many people, I think, struggle with this dichotamy. And, putting it so beautifully in words is probably a defense mechanism as well. Great job.
