Hide behind your wall,
so every time you fall,
nobody will see who you really are.
Why are you afraid of revealing your feelings?
Are you afraid you'll get help help you know you really need?
Are you afraid your friends will betray you or judge you for who you really are?
You say you have no scars,
but they show,
You didn't know that your friends that you thought you could never trust again have seen your emotions,
the feel sorry for what you've been through,
and for you.
Next time you feel your hiding your feelings from us,
you need to let out the true you,
so be happy,
so be sad,
If there's something wrong,
don't shrug it off and say it's gone.
David, print out this sign above where you write. It is a quote from Archibald MacLeish 'A POEM MUST NOT MEAN BUT BE.' This one was more prose than poetry and said harsh things to someone...Let your poem be the feeling, not spelling it out in angry, prosey sentences. Raynette
This is a great title its also has got a good message but it needed just a little mor refining shorting up just a little here and there but stil good

In this poem I was writing about one of my friends AND about myself hiding my feelings from the world and never speaking my mind or how I felt about something, but i'm slowly starting to change that and pouring my feelings out to all my friends and also smiling alot more...i'm glad i've changed that...
