Afraid To Show Love


Maybe I am different
From other men you've known
But what I feel inside
I have never shown

You see, I've always been told
That what a men feels inside
He should never expose
Especially if it's love
That's something you must hide

I was told if you let love show
It could make you vulnerable and weak
And that men like that
Are not what women seek

But yet I hear women say
Men should let their feelings show
I think about what I hear
But yet, I still don't know

I don't want anyone to think I'm weak
Or that I can be taken advantage of
That's what I think would happen
If I openly showed my love

This is something I must work through
I've been this way since I was young
Thinking back maybe that's the reason
A woman's heart I've never won

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
