Why do people
not notice
suffering?

Why do others
not see
my pain?

Why do they
say that they
didn't realise?

Why do I always
have to
explain?

Perhaps because you can
see the light
in the darkness

But not
the darkness
in the light

It's easy to hear
the noise
in the silence

But hard to hear
the silence
in the noise

So look carefully
Listen carefully
For those quiet, subtle signs
But above all
And most importantly
Be kind
Can anyone relate?
