“Stop Complaining”

So you’ve told me to stop complaining
But damn, I just needed to be heard
I’ve been holding all this in for so long
I’m struggling to put it all into word
But all of my words have run out
Way before these feelings ever do
I’m being crushed under this weight
And I still can’t complain to you?
I just want someone to know
Just how much I’m dying inside
I’m tired of being so damn strong
With all these burdens to hide
So let me complain a little longer, man
Because you never hear it from me
I never want to bring it into focus but
My shattered mind is getting lonely
I just want to say it once
So you can understand my stress
And you don’t try to dismiss me
When I just need to decompress
I never complained to you
And I never chomp at the bit
I just plaster a smile on my face
But inside I’m really losing my shit
It’s lonely out here in the medical abyss
It’s depressing and many times draining
With too much I want to protect you from
So don’t ever tell me to stop complaining
