Insides


Twigs upon the great oak tree
Seem to break with the wind
Limbs which were thought to be strong
Actually do bend
The outer appearance shows much
But it doesn’t show all
To be strong on the outside
Doesn’t reflect what’s inside and that’s the downfall

As strong as a great big wall
But hallow on the inside
Putting on a mask of a greater emotion
Than what is really felt inside
Standing like the great oak tree
So strong and beautiful indeed
But if only others knew
That my insides were so weak

“Hiding emotions really doesn’t solve anything… It just makes you weaker. ” -Monica Renata
