Tears Roll Down My Cheek
Tears roll down my cheeks
as I think of the never endless pain
I have every single day.
Day after day I think of the heart ach I’ve had for years.
The pain that comes whenever I realize a loved one is being hurt.
It kills me to see them and not be able to do anything about it.
There’s a big difference when you’re being hurt
But when somebody else that you care about gets hurt,
It hurts a lot more.
Tears roll down my eyes
As I remember all the times I’ve lied to them.
How is it they know nothing about how I feel?
Why it is I’m so depressed, or why I’m so angry?
None of them understand that I’ve kept everything inside.
Ever since I turned to that age,
I became emotionless, lifeless, heartless.
If I showed happiness about anything
They might take it away from me.
If I said what I really wanted
I might never get it.
And if I dared to cry in front of them
I would be weak and laughed at in front of my face.
Tears rolled down my cheeks
Ever single time I remembered a hurtful remark.
Anything a sister might have said,
Or brother, or cousin.
OR maybe just a aunts look or an uncle’s.
I might be stupid but I’m not naive.
I’m tired from this world, and I’m tired from all this pain.
Everybody has somebody to talk to,
And me… I don’t even have a lousy one.
