Holding Back Emotion

Simple things that come and go
Are easy to release
From the grip of hope in your heart
They can be soon be forgotten with ease

At times though, when you hold all in
Your heart for no eyes to see
Can make you desperate for compassion
And just peace and harmony

Of course, our stubborn selves in hand
Block us from the revealing the truth
My heart once soft is now turned to stone
Much different now than in youth

Tired of lies and treachery
And pointless words of life
Not once is the point brought up
That it involves hardships and strife

Hate you now or hate you later
It's all a matter of time
But hate is a notorious word
It's meaning doesn't fit the crime

Let it out, let it loud
Let your inner soul be heard
The time for your final attack is now
For defensive tactics are at this time absurd
