Sometimes we don’t tell because we are ashamed.
We think if we don’t tell it will go away.
Sometimes we don’t tell because it’s too scary to say it out loud.
We worry others will judge us.
Sometimes we think we can occupy ourselves with other things.
We think it will distract us.
It works briefly.
Sometimes we witness the pen telling it to the paper.
We hope it will lighten the burden.
And it does.
