    My Poem It Burns.

    There is a face in the sky. And it looks like she is crying. And the water burns. The feelings away. To a new world. To a new day. Birds sing. As i cry. On the swing. And i look up to that face. I lift my arms. I fly away to a better day. As i am flying away I see my feelings sit...

    Only When I Am Hurting...

    I have no issues displaying joy and love in my life...I do however tend to stuff the hurts.  Dont wish to burden others maybe....or perhaps a more selfish fear of the vulnerability...not entirely sure which.

    I Show Happy

    I don't have a hard time showing all emotions -- just any that aren't happy. I show people happy all the time, regardless of whether I am. I get impatient with people who can't push their feelings aside and just act happy when the situation demands it.
