I dare not speak it out loud, for I fear that you may judge me.
I keep it in, until I feel like bursting, even then I swallow it down.

Little pieces of me will be everywhere just floating around.
and all that will be left is an empty doll, with just fragments of what was before.

Who are you to place yourself so high above me?
Are you a divine being? a God?
What makes you so superior to me?

and yet you try to place yourself in a better rank.
