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?

I am an aspiring writer. I'm still discovering my strengths and learning the art of poetry and prose.

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 :)
