I just wrote this and wanted to share. Writing poetry is my therapy. I Suffer In Silence Erfula1 3/28/06 9:19pm I suffer in silence so that no one knows that I am weak. I don’t want anyone to see the dark side of me. I suffer in silence so that people think that I am strong. I don’t let them know everything that is so wrong. I don’t let them see the pain raging in me like a storm. I don’t let them know the extent of the harm That this condition is doing to my life. I don’t let them know the extent of my strife. I keep going all though sometimes I want to give in And let the pain completely take over within. I bottle it all up and keep it deep inside And save my tears for late at night before I cry. I suffer in silence and hope for a brighter day. I suffer in silence and keep looking for a way To beat this thing that is controlling every part of me. I hope for a cure to set me free. Until then I suffer in silence.
