When Emotions Explode

When emotions take the better of you
Where are you supposed to run?

How can you hide, when there are no more walls?
To escape from, to lie low, to withdraw from everyone

Who do you turn to when you break down and fall?
Are your tears important to anyone at all?

Anger, hatred, sorrow, jealousy and joy
Emotions, so transient- they’re hard to employ.  

When emotions take the better of you,
Whom do you even trust?

Faith and belief in others can be a delusion 
That can take you in circles – around and around, until you find yourself losing focus 

That's when you know you got to pick yourself up, 
There’s plenty to change – if only you notice!
