I will not cry,
for I am strong!
I will not share,
the secrets are mine!
I will not laugh,
the pleasures are mine!
I will not sing,
songs are cheap!
I will not love,
love is weak!

If I do not cry,
am I weak?
If I do not share,
will the secrets sleep?
If I do not laugh,
will the pleasures be pain?
If I do not sing,
will my spirit weep?
If I do not love,
will I be a void?
