Quote:

"Sometimes you can hurt yourself more than anyone can hurt you just by keeping all your feeling hidden."



Theme:

"No one should be afraid to share their feelings with someone they care about."

UnKnown

If I showed you my teardrop,

Would you collect them like rain,

Store them in jars.

That are labelled with “pain”,

Would you follow their tracks

From my eyes down my cheeks,

As they write all the stories,

I’m too scared to speak,

Would you stop them with kisses,

Bring their flow to a hault,

As you teach me that pain,

Isn’t always my fault,

Would you hold my face gently,

As you dry both my eyes,

And whisper the words,

“You’re too precious to cry”,

If I showed you my teardrop,

Would you show me your own,

And learn though we’re lonely,

We’re never alone.
