How Much They Weigh

I write to vent out

Because I’m not one to shout


Every emotion I’ve ever felt

Are in every word I’ve ever spelt


My pen holds my secrets

All the bullets and cuts


If anyone new the depths of my mind

They’d wonder how I’ve survived


I write to make myself stronger

This only builds up the anger


I choose never to cry

And yet they wonder why


So many opinions swimming in my head

None of them as loud as mine


I write those down hoping they’ll go away

But they don’t and I feel how much they weigh
