Janie

Listen

Words are insufficient to explain to you the pain

No, the words will never be enough

I wish that I could dance

For my feelings to be expressed

I wish that I could paint

For the sting to be a little less

I think the tears would do it

But you're never there to see me cry

Why is it unacceptable to us

To talk about the pain we all feel

Why can't we try and understand

Together, we could heal

But I know the words are not enough

Your gentle ears will not hear the hurting behind them
