Silent Cries – Author Lindsey F. Rhodes

© Copyright 2010 CorbisCorporation


Real eyes realize
The broken promises and the constant lies
Living in a fantasy world albeit a fairy tale
Naiveté keeping the dream alive but clarity soon will prevail
Constant inquiries about my belonging
Outside looking in; togetherness is my longing
Depressed state of mind; actions are in slow motion
Ready to belt out and cry; no controlling this emotion
Learning to forgive and not forget
the best is to come but not just yet
Rising from the ashes of deceit for I caught fire
Ignoring those same voices by taking a road much higher
