Courage Needed.....


Within, not without, there's a mournful shout,

a cry which comes up from the deep;

but before it's expressed the noise is suppressed

and buried once more to sleep.


Time and time again, in spite of the pain,

her sad heart will attempt to heal,

but the opinions of others craftily smothers

thus once more she avoids being real.


Such a sad plight when she gives up the fight,

bows her head and 'oft walks away;

if only she'd dare, with her words laid bare,

they'd find she had something to say.....
