These Bottled Up Emotions

Reach A High Velocity

Emotions Swirl Around

Denial is Everything

Anger Is Your Comfort

Sadness Is Your Enemy

Letting Go Is Hard

But Holding On Is Harder

Falling Is Inevitable

You Crash Into The Guilt

You’re Surrounded By The Pain

You Fight Against Acceptance

But Then You Accept

Put Your Head Up High

And Decide To Move Forward
