Silent Tears

silent tears

 

By:  Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.

 

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

Incognito

Silent

Invisible

These silent tears I cry so much

Till I have ran out of tears to cry
