You sit there as everyone walks by
No one notices you
I see the depression in your eyes
I see the anxiety that keeps you shut down
I see the battle scares
I see the pain and heartache in your so called blank stares
You’re beautiful, quiet
And they think you have it all together
But all these inward battles you face daily
They never see it because if you did let them see
They’d think you aren’t strong enough
They’d say things like
Why don’t you just get over it?
Why can’t you just be happy?
But I say you were not meant to battle this alone
There’s still hope
Hope in the one who created you for a purpose
Hope in the one who knows and understands your pain best
It might seem like a glimmer
But it’s still hope.
