Words Once Concealed

The human body a shell

Social standards make rules 

Inner turmoil, a living hell

Razor tongues used as tools 


Changing is the mind 

Ideas trapped inside 

Expression kept confined 

Feelings forced to hide 


Pen to paper

The heart pours out

Worries turn to vapor 

True emotions shout


The veil is gone 

Thoughts are revealed

Free as a swan 

Words once concealed
