Stay The Course

So many feelings swirling inside

Which ones to show, which ones to hide

The depth of them, I dare not reveal

Though they are true, though they are real To feel so much is scary indeed

To have such a powerful need

I can't allow myself to give in

This battle of wills, I must win

The victory must belong to me

To lose would be a tragedy

Outstanding circumstances declare

That I proceed with greatest care

The decision can't be mine alone

Others involved would not condone

So I must keep my feelings hidden

And bend my will to my bidding

Staying true to the course I have set

Content, at peace, without regret
