Hush love, don't say a word
Nothing you say 
Should ever be heard

Everything inside you 
You must hide
Show to no one 
Let your thoughts be one with the tide

Never a sound 
Let no one notice
That even above ground
You are at your lowest

It hurts, yes, but that's just life
Sometimes you have to be stabbed
To know who holds the knife

Joy can only last so long
Before it turns into a sad slow song

Close your eyes
And think of tomorrow 
Erase the wounds 
of yesterday's sorrow

Until then, be strong
You're  the lion in the cage
You have to free yourself
You cannot be saved 

Look me in the eye
Don't you dare start to cry
Weakness is vulnerable
This pain is temporary
And it is tolerable

Wipe away the tears 
Strip away the fears
Put on that mask
Be happy for once,
Even if it is an act
