Why is it so hard to say the truth?
We say thousand of words a day
But the ones that mean the most tend to be left unsaid
For the fear of hurting others’ feelings
I know I am guilty, I am that one
I would hold it in, for years
Before saying what I truly felt
Or meant to say, as to not
Hurt the ones I care about
I want to say it to you
Somehow let what I feel
Just slip out, be acknowledged
Because I don’t know how much longer it can be unsaid
The truth is not overrated
Especially when it burdens you
And weighs you down
All because you care too much
But why? Why do I care so much
Probably because I do not wish to disappoint
I simply want to evoke smiles, not frowns
But is a frown worth the truth?
For the truth will set you free
