Emotion ~ Nokwanda Thabede

The scariest thing
About letting yourself go
Is letting people know you’re emotional
And when you cry every night
And wish you would die
Where are they
Telling you
To hold on,
Stay strong?
No where.
They are no where to be found.
No they don’t make a sound.
So when they come around
In your glory days,
They don’t even
Recognize your face.
It’s a shame to say
They just want your fame.
But they don’t even know you’re emotional.
Cause you keep it in so they don’t win.
But when
That one person
Comes along
And sings you
A song,
Let them in
Don’t let them
Move on.
