Inspirational Poem by Teens

Stop Hiding

I wrote this poem a while back. It's about how some people feel every day and about trying to see all that you're missing when you only look at the negative in life.

True Feelings

© more by Wesley

What do you do when your world falls apart,
When your secrets rip and tear at your heart?
What happens when the truth becomes a lie,
When your own happiness you defy?
What do you do when the tears don't fall,
When silence is the only answer to your call?
How do you cope with a pain that goes so deep,
When all you want is to lie down and sleep?
When you don't want to wake up to another day,
When you're afraid of what everyone will say?
How do you hide yourself so no one can reach you,
When the lies are no longer true?
What do you do when you can't bear sadness anymore,
When the lies fall useless to the floor?
What do you do when the hurt is greater every time that you wake,
When it's your own life that you want to take?
What happens when you can't bear the whispers you hear,
When it's all collaborating with your deepest fear?
What do you do when you don't want the sun to rise,
When it's just another day to bring tears to your eyes?
What do you do when you don't have answers to questions you ask,
When your true feelings are hidden behind a mask?
When the tears fall freely and you don't try to hide,
Only then do you realize the happiness you defied.
