Open Your Eyes

pushed aside
left alone
nobody sees
open your eyes

they just move along
unknowing, oblivious
open your eyes and you will see

the pain it rips
pulls inside me
it is too much

they don't know!
pay attention
just open and look

someone has to see this

why don't i tell
they push away harder
they reject
they disagree
the pain gets stronger
i suffer in silence

my fault
i wish i didn't need them
their eyes never open
they don't wish to see me

just keep away
safer it seems
don't let them touch me
run away
get away

you have something better
eventually you will learn
it might be too late
to open your eyes

    Many people are so blind to the silent screams right in front of their face. I really enjoyed this I can relate easily.
