Like a Dog

I'm scared and my heart races faster than a speeding horse but it would be too uncool to not do it.
I smile hoping no one can tell I was afraid or that it hurt.
All I do is hide behind a smile even when it hurts so bad and I want to speak out.
LISTEN TO ME! I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW IT REALLY MAKES ME FEEL!
But not a word comes out and all I can do is hold back.
Afraid no one will like me or think I am weak.
Is it just fear or lack of courage?
I don't want to way my tail anymore.
