Keep it in (Poetry)

Keep it in

By Justin J. Conidaris

Keep it in,

buried deep the soul.

Keep it in,

because it can never be let out.

Keep it in,

so that they never know.

Keep it in,

because if it gets out,

your world will burn.

Let it out,

the fire and the pain and the anguish.

Let it out,

the burning and the cold.

Let it out,

the blackness.

Keep it in,

the hatred of self.

Keep it in…

Until it burns you alive.
