Pain

They say pain is physical

A bruise or a scratch

They drill this into our brains

So this connotation we attach

They label us dramatic

And dramatic we remain

But not everyone is happy

Not everyone is the same

Emotional pain disregarded

For it is just “attention” we seek

I am afraid to show my pain

Afraid to be weak

But no longer can we tolerate

This ignorant belief

We need to stand for ourselves

To get our well deserved relief

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
