Profit and Loss

Is it a sign of weakness

to show your true feelings.

Is it better to hide

them away from those

with whom your dealing?

Would they take advantage

and use them for

their own benefit?

Leaving you at a loss while

they’re the ones who profit.

Those who wear their

feelings on their sleeve

are often the people

who end up being deceived.

Maybe it’s better to navigate

this world without a care

for there’s one thing we learn

and that’s life isn’t fair.
