If you are feeling disheartened that you are somehow not enough, set your heart ablaze and look ahead! -Kyojuro Rengoku

There is a river

A river in the brain

That holds the tears

Of every living being

Most humans hold them in

And cover their face

With a mask

To hide their true emotions

But when stress builds up

The dam holding the tears

Start to crack and break

As the water seeps through

The mask the human wears

Falls off the face

And outcomes the tears

The tears of pain

The tears of hurt

The tears that wouldn’t stay in

The tears that show 

The real feelings

Of one who

Holds everything inside

Holding in all the pain and hurt we feel behind a mask is something very difficult that a lot of us people experience.
