When The Young One Cries

When the young one cries
Tears seep from jagged places
A deep salty sting
That burns from within

When the young one cries
Her voice is inaudible
But her pain is palpable
Shrinking and shuddering
Inside her own skin

When the young one cries
She asks herself why
They donโ€™t notice
Why they fail to see her

She wonders what if
She could matter
Only for a moment
Just long enough
To help dry the tears
From this young oneโ€™s tired eyes

    1. Thank you so much. Artistic expression is a powerful tool to help me access internal feelings that donโ€™t make much sense. Once I start drawing then words start to emerge to help me figure out and name whatโ€™s going on inside.
      I appreciate your comment. It sure is nice to know that this stuff can make sense outside of my own head. ๐Ÿ’•

    1. Thank you. ๐Ÿ’•It may not change the weight of the feelings, but it does bring comfort to know weโ€™re not alone in this space, doesnโ€™t it? ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
