You tell me to openly say what is wrong
You advise me to face the problem head on
Do you not know I know this?
Do you not know I am aware what the problem is?
Some things are just better left unsaid
Some things are better hidden away
You tell me to stop beating around the bush
But confront it head on, face the painful reality
Perhaps it will help me find middle ground!
You tell me it isn’t easy to walk this road
Others have gone down this same path, like you
Dear Sir, I’d rather walk a different path
Not ones full of poisonous ailments,
You told me my emotions are for a purpose
Unfortunately, you felt I was not acknowledging them
I had only wished for some kind of comfort
By openly expressing my fear and grief
Through poetic thoughts and writings
I tell you Sir, I am not beating around the bush
I tell you, I am having a hard time accepting
This pain and heartache I feel
When my loved ones are hurting and sick
