Biting Back the Tears

I sit here quietly thinking as the tears wash down my face

 

They said I was wrong that my words are in the wrong place

 

They tell me I shouldn’t even though I know I have to try

 

Now I am biting back the tears I cannot let them see me cry



The anger in their expression makes me hunker to the floor

 

I don’t want to live in this place I cannot deal with the chaos anymore

 

I want to be free to express my thoughts without them showing distaste

 

Again I am biting back the tears my time on sorrow I shall not waste



I search for an answer to why I should not speak my mind

 

Looking and seeking but the answer I cannot find

 

I have come to realize it is not me who needs to make a change

 

Again biting back the tears but these are happy and they feel strange



I will not accept your disapproval as a reason to close my mind

 

In me a friend or worthy rival you are guaranteed to find

 

I see the truth so clearly as though I have awakened from a dream

 

No longer biting back the tears they are tears of joy now flowing like a stream
