Being tired is only natural
Yet me being negative is unacceptable
Burn out is inevitable
But me being sad is unusual

Stand still, be perfect
Hide the hurt, stunt the anger
Shield the pain, ignore the hunger
Forget the feeling of feeling free from pressure

Let my face shine like porcelain
The sparkle in my eye glows
Capping off the boiling stew of emotions
Bottled messily deep below
