In Silent Sorrow

Because I Overcame

In silent sorrow
I watch others
passing me by
while I sit
in soulful observation

In silent sorrow
I bear the scars
and pain
from wounds
that never fully heal

In silent sorrow
I weep
for what was
and wasn’t
and what could‘ve been

In silent sorrow
I always smile
hiding my tears
forcing laughter
where tears would fall

In silent sorrow
I carry the burdens
and feel the pain
of a world
gone awry

In silent sorrow
I found myself
and lose myself
building and tearing down
barriers that separate

In silent sorrow
I pray
reaching for hope
knowing salvation
is mine to be had

In silent sorrow
I learn
and grow
strengthened by love
and faith

In silent sorrow
I fall
and rise again
standing ever strong
in silent sorrow.
