Blue eyes that don't shine so bright
No one knows your secret fight
your fight to hold on
your fight to stand strong
your fight with yourself
to maintain their mental health

The fight to keep peace
your fight to stay silent
your fight to stay good
being perfect for them
so much more than they deserve

you don't always have to be good
you need to speak up
to make yourself heard
and no only counts if theres more to come
because by itself, its just one word

you need to shine bright
even if the only thing left is ambers
you need to be heard
even your whats left of yoru voice is a whisper
shine for me
I promise you'll be seen
give me a whisper
I promise I'll be here to listen
I'm always here
as your flightless anger
