what demons do you hide?

by mortalrose

ever wondered what goes through other people's heads?

what they might be thinking about?

what kind of stories linger behind a single face?

that funny old man that crosses your path every morning -

would you believe that he conquered cancer a dozen times?

nevertheless he smiles, as if he ain't soon about to die

look around, do you see that beautiful young lady in her summer dress?

who would think that she's exposed to domestic violence

and that behind that thin piece of fabric she hides bruises and a never resting panic

keep observing, behind you - the man that shrugs at every loud noise

do not judge him, just a year ago he stood on the battlefield with a gun

he saw his friends die, look closer and you'll see in his eyes the wars that he still fights

you would probably never mind the kid at the corner with her holey clothes

nobody would believe her why she stole a single lolly out of the store

it was for her younger brother who is starving at home

if people would take a closer look at you -

what would they get to see behind your seemingly happy smile?

what demons do you hide?
