Invisible Tears.


No one understands.

No one can.

Sure they try, but don’t get it.

I am not complaining.

I am not even criticizing.

I just want to let it out, that’s all.

 

The person who smiles at you every morn

Cries secretly wishing for an escape

For they find hope in your eyes.

 

The kid who annoys you to no end,

Gets no love at home

You lift that little guy’s spirits without even realizing.

 

The grumpy old man who never talks

Is lonely and wishes for company

Perhaps one day you could spare five minutes to smile.

 

Every time you are tempted to scream

Cry, break or hurt yourself

Your guardian angel cries.

 

Won’t you give life a second chance?

Won’t you try to smile again?

Won’t you just, for once, forgive yourself?
