You don't understand

People are different and so are their thoughts,

Some people are easier to understand while others are not.


You don’t understand,

And you can never do,

I try to tell you,

But you can’t get it through.


All I can do is pretend and smile throughout the day,

Hold back the tears and pretend I’m okay.

Sometimes the people closest to you make you feel worse,

Although I thought they would be there for me the first.


But keeping silent doesn’t mean I have nothing to say

It means your not ready to understand my way.

Keeping everything to myself, not like it matters to anyone else,

Its hurts to keep everything to myself but… it’s just complex.


Life is full of emotions like the sky, sometimes full of sunshine or sometimes gloomy

Soo many feelings to control with, I’m always moody.

I know in life we have to deal with certain things and sure life can be unfair,

But somethings are really hard to bare.


The prettiest eyes have ended up weeping,

The sweetest smiles hide the deepest feeling,

Kindest hearts have felt the most pain.

No one is to be blamed.

Beautifully written in a simple way. It reminded me of my wife's past. She went through like this almost everyday till our marriage. Now she's completely opposite. Thank you for sharing this.
