when I was younger
I thought bottle up emotions was good
like hey I don't have emotions
but right now I know better
it is just a way to cry myself to sleep
a chance to have random outbursts
a way to doubt every emotion you feel
like lately I laugh at everything
and cry at every petty thing
I can not even have a personality
like who am I wishing to miraculously disappear
maybe days are never bright
nights are beautifully dark
I wish I was strong
just the way everybody thinks I am
I'm just a baby who everybody thinks is mature
