"Not now not now", she told herself
"When so much is dependent on you
Don't showcase your emotions
One day, you'll get your due"
She saw people around her
Family and friends and everyone else
Free to emote, free to speak
Now is not your time, chimed the bells
Suppress and supress she did some more
Wanting the best for all around her
"Pray, tell, how about me, myself?
My day seems to be moving farther and farther"
One day, the realization came
She was meant to keep her emotions at bay
For in the smiles of people around her
Lay her happiness, her time and her day
