Why do people hide their emotional pain even when they are very hurt?
"Hoping that we won't be discovered, we hide,
We might fake a smile, but are broken inside,
Of us, there's a side
That needs a guide
A person with whom we can confide
So we don't have to hide our true side;
When we say we are fine,
We lie.”
