The Words They Were Afraid to Say

By Elle LaChance ‘21

Each day keeps passing by

He and she both hold back the tears as they cry

Their pain is silent and aching from the past

They’re hoping that this hurt hopefully will not last

The smiles, laughter, joy, and light

All become an empty sadness in the darkness of night

However, they hold onto each new and bright day

With all the feelings and the words they were afraid to say

Outside In
