A Secret

Standard

I am a hypocrite.

I tell other people to follow their hearts and be unashamed of who they are,
and find myself frustrated when their excuse not to do something,
not to be proud of who they are,
is because they are afraid of other people’s opinions.

Yet…

I hold my tongue,
I keep parts of myself secret,
I deny my desires,
because I am wary of the disappointed comment
and the disapproving stare.
