Scared Soul

People say she never cries

They say,

She's weird

That she's too quiet

People say she doesn't care

She's a snob

That she's cold.

If they knew her as I do

They wouldn't say that

People never see her cry

Because she cries inside

She's quiet

Because she's quite shy

If they had lived life as she has

They'd be a little leary too

She's too sensitive

To let people see she's hurting

They might laugh at her

Tell her she's being a Fool

She won't voice her feelings,

Her opinions

She's afraid of rejection

She can't go on like this forever

She'll die

Just because she was afraid

To be herself
