When the tears come!

When the tears come,

will there be someone by my side?

When the tears come,

will I run and hide?

When the tears come

will it be late at night?

When the tears come,

will I know when the time is right?

When the tears come,

will anyone even be there?

When the tears come,

will anyone even care?

When the tears come,

will someone show me love?

When the tears come,

would I even get a hug?

When the tears come,

will it be known how hard I tried to keep it in.

When the tears come,

who will know the pain?

When the tears  come,

will anyone even know how old they are,

and from where they came?

When the tears come,

will they be old like long ago?

When the tears come,

will it be too late to let them go?

Really who would even know,

of my lifelong fight to keep them in?

When the tears come,

finally rushing down my face,

what then?

When the tears come,

will the rage  be released,

only shielded in fear,

and trapped inside those tears.

Who’ll even hear?

If I scream, and rant and rage,

will it even make a sound.

Perhaps it will pool on the floor,

and become hidden through the cracks.

Just like long ago,

Even now they still don’t know.
