What I Cannot Let Them See

Poem By Edward Grey

I have tried so hard
My life is a sham
I cannot express myself for who I am
I have longed to find
A friend who is true
Who with stick with me
And help me through

But no one cares
Though I am weak and torn
I cannot let them see the truth inside of
The pain inside of me will not go away
It only increases every day

I have friends
Who does not
But mine are not real
They are not really there
They act nice to me
But I can see
They do not really care about me

I listen to them
When they are down
I help them up off the ground
But when the time comes
They pretend that they do not see
As I lie there feeble and weak

My wounds though many
They do not even try
To help me
To fix me
They could care less if I died

And yet I cannot let them see
The truth that is in me
I know if I tried
They would just look away

So here I am
Battered and torn
Trying not to show
The pain in me
I want so bad
To let it all out
But I cannot
The friends that I have
Would just shrug it off
It would not be their loss

I lay by the highway
Bleeding and torn
My friends pass me by
I cannot lat them see
The pain and the agony inside of me

In the midst of the slain

His armor on his back
