For not all wounds are Visible…

The axe forgets what the tree remembers… An African proverb

You don’t know the pain she is going through
No matter how much you see you will never see through
She is so broken that she can physically feel it
You don’t know her pain or the story behind it
Mentally drained and spiritually dead
Being emotionally weak yet physically she smiles
Sometimes she gets so sad that it’s hard to breathe
But the tears that stream down her cheeks
Never comforts her in a way that she seeks
It will get better they say but when she asks
It’ll be okay they say but how she questions
“I’m here for you,” they say those powerful words
Exhausted to hear those meaningless phrases
Pain is inevitable in this terribly false world
Her unexpressed emotions all being curled
Which she’s been holding in for too long and it still prolongs
So today I pray for every person with a story
That secretly lives in this seemingly insurmountable pain…
