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




These silent tears I cry so much

Till I have ran out of tears to cry
