Hear me

HEAR ME

 

What lies beneath is unknown.

Nobody can see you, you are on your own.

Worries and fear will surface without realizing it,

No matter how you pretend that you are not beat

 

Life is hard for some of us here.

Difficulties to others, abuse that is severe.

Forbidden to communicate with the people we love

I feel like a prisoner, photos are all I have.

 

I start before sunrise, end before midnight

Long hours of work, it does not seems right.

There are times that I wake up in my sleep in pain

Leg cramps that are unbearable are acting up again.

 

The food they give is not enough for me.

Leftover in a week, they give for free

But if there is nothing, I need to sit and wait

For them to finish dinner, I can have something on my plate.

 

I tried to reach out to others to let them know,

But their blank stares tell me, just go with the flow.

They listen with their eyes, not with their ears

Words they tell me, they bring me to tears

 

Life is hard for some of us here

Difficulties to others, some live in fear

We need a heart that listens and empathises

To feel our woes and hear our cries.
