Holding myself up

Holding Myself UP


Looks of ice passed,

You walk on by with your head held high,

Tears kept inside, Smile firmly fixed.

People stare at you,

But you know who you are,

And don’t care what they think anymore.

You reach for someone or something,

To take the pain you conceal away,

The pain they caused.

But you can find no one brave enough,

So you walk on with your self respect,

As they stagnate on their own hypocrisy.
