Eyes scream for love,
Hands find nothing but thin air,
Mouth talks, but nothing comes out
At least, not according to them
Then there’s a smile,
It’s not altogether there
Imagine that, a smile that’s not altogether there
On a face so constant...
And when no one can hear,
Well, my heart burns with hurt,
Why can’t anyone hear?
Does anyone care?
I am a human like anyone else,
I have feelings,
I can breathe,
The world’s big enough for all of us,
For every being to live and play,
To learn and educate
But it’s not enough,
It’s not big enough to provide equal love and care,
To all of us,
And it’s not enough
Until you surrender to your shell
Alone, because you’re tired
Tired of not enough equality
Not enough respect
And not enough listeners
And now, all I have to ask is this:
Can anybody hear me?
