Sitting and Standing

Sitting there pretty and gloomy 

Quiet seems scared to speak 

Doesn ́t want words to leak 

Sits in the back so alone and in need

Feels so locked and needs to be freed 

Stuck in a cycle of fear 

So hurt can't shed no tears 

Must stay strong better days come 

Just sit quiet blow my gum 

Must keep a fake smile just for while 

Sooner or later it will be true 

You ́ll find someone to love and be stuck like glue 

No longer blue

All is true 

Standing pretty and bright 

All happy and in sight .
