There are people close to us who think the truth is wronging them, and because you are honest, they shut you out.

A True Coward


The truth is painful, that I know,

But lies will never let you grow.

If you choose to die in deceit,

At least don't ever say that I treat

You with disrespect

Because I expect

You to be honest with me.

'Though you're not a soldier,

There's a battle you shoulder.

You've grown so frail,

Yet you're not older.

You've stayed in the dark,

Despite it gets colder.

Although you think

You can't see your pains,

And have blurred all things out,

It still remains.

You've kept me also in the dark,

So I cannot find you,

But you cannot hide the mark

Of your troubles right behind you.

Only ruin is build, and yet

You wonder why you fear and regret.
