“Pain In Her Eyes”


Show Text

it hurts to see the pain
etched deep within her eyes.
i wish i could wipe away the grief
that makes her eyes dark,
fathomless pits of grief.

but then, i cannot do that;
for, the agony, living in her eyes,
are her children–
my brothers and me.

in the end, i can only try
to assuage the persistent sorrow
by reaching the zenith
of who i can be.

–Diwa
