I'm Crying on the Inside
By: Sarah Lightheart (a.k.a. Sarah Silver)
I'm screaming on the inside
Where no one can hear my cry.
No one can listen or look at me
No one can ask me why.
Why do you cry and care so deep
For something that wasn't true?
They would ask with their smiling eyes
Come on, tell us. Why do you?
Why do you care I cry so much?
What does it matter to you?
I would scream so void of hope
That's true. I know you do!
I'm shouting on the inside
From the pain within my heart
The news hit me like a billion volts
And it threatened to tear me apart.
How could something so cruel and so bad
Happen to something so great?
That is the question I now put to mind
But I find nothing for it to relate.
I'm hollering on the inside
Where my cry is only heard
By those who others have only called false
These people hear every word.
They hear and feel what others do not
Some even share my anger and pain
They could see what was hurting me as they felt my shock
And I could feel their strain.
I'm howling on the inside
Like a wolf in pain and despair
I see only wolves now in my mind
They are what's left in there.
They run through my forest searching for me
In hopes to ease my pain.
If they find me now then a battle may fall
And only their dead would be lain.
I'm screeching on the inside
Like an Eagle, Falcon, or Hawk
One of these three, I know I may be
Maybe I'm just a Hawk, but I talk.
I talk of things that may seem strange
But for me they're normal and true
They are what keep me sane in life
They are what keeps me from being too blue.
I'm crying on the inside
This pain is just too much
My fragile spirit I know will survive
But it may break with reality's touch.
