These tears I cry
Well up deep inside
They aren’t seen by the naked eye
For shame is what I feel as I cry these horrid tears
The type of tears that I’ve cried silently for years
The hurt so powerful, it lives inside me
Slowly eating away at my sanity
I carry this pain, this hurt, this distrust
Like a soldier carries his bags in Iraq
How can I love while crying these silent tears?
How can one person live with so much pain?
All I could do was cry
Cry for you
Cry for me
Cry for the world
No one can see these tears
They are buried deep inside
These silent tears I cry so much
Till I have ran out of tears to cry
