Some people never cry out loud
Too much stigma, far too proud.
Never show any true affection
Keep it in for fear of rejection.
They may come across as cold and hard
Never show emotion, never dropping guard.
But the truth is never as it seems from outside
Most people have compassion, just can’t confide.
Lacking in confidence and unable to show
Their true feelings locked in and full of woe.
If you know such a person you should offer your hand
Guide them back to the real world lest they understand.
Lend them your shoulder and let them be proud
To show their emotions and just cry out loud.
