I Hide

I hide my earnest yearnings

in the sack of your wishes

and go about fulfilling them


I hide my wind of thoughts

in the veil of my face

and make your day


I hide my inner sorrows 

in the blanket of my skin

and listen to yours


And I don’t ask

Can you hear me?

For you’ll hear all wrong


I’m liberated 

Liberated from expecting to be understood

Liberated to keep my feelings to myself 

Feelings that won’t change like you

that will stay with me 

and to them, I need not ask

Can you hear me?

Professionally, I'm into Internal Communications and feel blessed to have a work life that is closely related to what I am passionate about, Writing :)
