Within these eyes
lies a story
that was never seen
but saw,
that was never heard
yet metioned.
With my fluent
unspoken words
I have reached
the souls of many
yet touched the hearts
of the heartless.

Can you hear my voice?
How loud it sounds
however I have become mute
from as long as I could.
Haven't you touched my hands
to feel my beat?
Yet you stand by me
not knowing that your
not standing
on your own two feet.

My eyes have been heavy
from the endless weight
you made me carry,
yet engraved in my eyes
lies this story.
