Deaf and blind
the world can seem
who are all these strangers?
when will someone ask you how you feel?
misery etched into each second of silence, so
the need to distract oneself is prevalent
pushing back the actual need
which is simple compassion from another being.
Does that thing have a soul?
somewhere inside that shell of yours?
the tender-hearted, filled with pain but also sympathy
if only it didn’t have an ego, pride, selfishness
(the symptoms of the blind and deaf).
You suffer in silence
and so should others
that’s what you believe
disconnected, detached and disengaged
the mass of men and women walk by one another
each yearning for the same thing
each with misery.
What is it mean to be human?
to listen, to see, to feel, to touch
you take my burden
I take yours
you hold my hand
I hold yours
together, as one, sharing in the misery,
together, as one, alleviating each others,
