Choose your battle
Stay in. Hold in. Don’t shout. Ignore.
Try to smile, avoid it all.
It’s hard and builds up
Is this how it works?
Honesty isn’t meaningful enough
When saying it all exhausts
Don’t be a banshee
Even if you’re lost
Get hurt. It’s okay. It’s not worth it
There’s other times
To shout out loud
Cry by yourself
Show them a smile
Talk about some new style
Can’t won’t shouldn’t have to
Not when it feels so vile
Honesty means everything and
Your feelings are valid as they brew
Be upset, be annoyed. It’s real, so scream
There is nothing if you hold it in
Nothing if you don’t push through
Feel your lips sting let it rip your skin
