eyes.


6.8.17

sometimes i just watch people.
and sometimes i listen to what they don't say.
those words are held deep within their eyes,
screaming to be spoken.
in their eyes, i see pain
i see broken-ness
i see the hard, cold display of hate and bitterness.
i see the power of love, i see determination.
i see quiet hope.
and once in a great while, i will see those young,
bright and beautiful eyes, that seem to say,
"i am here to make a difference. i am here to change the world."
and i tell myself, "i want to be like that."
