In Her Eyes

She was full of rage she had been crushed into many peices
a broken heart that she thought could not be repaired
she wanted to take her life for she felt she had no life
the way she lived she had the feeling she was already dead
no hope, no joy, no one to care, and no one to love
you could see it in her eyes, a river of tears, flames of destruction..
she had a stare of death, she felt that the future had passed her by
yesterday will never come and today was a mystery
everything she ever feared were in her eyes
had she stopped and dried her eyes for a moment 
and looked a little further concentrated on her vision
she would have seen her bright future 
and that the good life she never lived was also in her eyes
