I got myself a locker

In the corner of my heart

Where I store all feelings

That are tough and hard

All the hurt and pain

All talks of me being vain

The angst and desperation

All hopelessness, all failures

I slowly categorize it

And stash it away

Why do I not share it you say?

I hesitate in case you flick it away

Just like you flick away my fears

For me they are real

But they are not yours

I don’t expect you to understand

Just humor me I say

But you are too strong 

And I am a just ordinary person

I hesitate to tell you

For the fear that you will laugh in my face

You can cope up with everything

I am not that way

One day I will deal with my issues

And face all my fears

I will try to be strong like you

But today I hesitate
