Suppress the Repress
Fake smiles, hidden sneers,
Held back tears, smoke and mirrors.
Suck it up, tough it out, swallow your pride,
Take a deep breath and hold it all inside.
Speak when you are spoken to, use your “inside voice”, and
Tell those damn kids to stop making noise!
Unanswered questions, resentment, assumptions.
What the fuck happens to all those unexpressed emotions?
Say what you feel and mean what you say.
Stomp, scream, yell, shout, and don’t just walk away.
It’s not them, but you who is being sacrificed.
Stop being polite and so fucking nice!
