Don’t Hide

Some days I sink down Pulled down by dark thoughts Suffocating, drowning in a pit of black tar

But the world doesn’t want to know They expect all of us to smile Blissfully ignorant of the struggles Going on all around them

They use words like “burden” “attention-seeking”, “drama queen” To make us hide ourselves and our problems Because they don’t understand

They don’t want to see the darkness But the darkness is just as important as the light

So please don’t hide yourself from me I’m struggling too, so I understand I know how hard it is, but I also know that we don’t have to do this alone
