• Hushed eyes; small smile; cautioned ears
    Hiding the pain within the heart
    Following the broken dreams only out of fear
    Watching closely as lives fall apart

    The quiet eyes filled with involuntary cries
    The emotionless eyes help hide the sadness
    Allowing to see past the substantial lies
    Staring into the man-made mess

    The false smile shows a small sign of bliss
    Keeping the sadness from curious eyes
    With very few words, so there's nothing to miss
    Never revealing the secrets behind the sighs

    The ears stay alert from all sounds, all around
    Listening to all the fights
    Staying cautious of the horrible sounds
    Never getting off guard even by night
