Do you know? — Poem

Do you know?

How many tears I held back in the past
How many questions I asked myself before getting out
How many times I wondered what staring at me they were thinking
How hard I tried to hide it all in the smile

Do you know how much my eyeshadow gave me confidence
About it being kept behind a mask
Do you know how pressured I felt for not being like everyone else
Always to be more or always to be less

Do you know how it feels
To carry a heavy mind all the time
Do you know what it is like
To let it all out?

Because I am willing to learn
Before it explodes
Get rid of it and get to fly

I want you to know
That I need you now.
