You don’t know the other end

You’ve never experienced it
that’s why you would never understand
what me and others like me
have been through and still going through
every second, every minute
bleeding from inside and unable to ask for help
could you feel the silent cries and unspoken words?
some miseries leave heart and lips just motionless
even when wanting to say a flood of words
feeling being muted by my grief
then I wonder if there’s any use of letting you know
telling you what I feel coz for all the time
you’ve held the knife from it’s handle
You don’t know the other end
you’ve never experienced that pain, that ache
it’s sharpness, it’s brutality
the way it hurts, the way it pierces
I’m all bleeding and dying
yet you seem so indifferent coz you’ve
never felt the other end
it’s easy to believe and blame
yet so hard to be the one to give endless explanations

Your words and false preaching about happiness in the world
seem to befool innocent souls like me
how many lives would you take?
how many hearts would you break?
when will your innate need really end?
oh how many trusts and soul would break and burn
for nothing is seemingly harder than to
be not able to explain yourself to anyone
when you’re shattering from inside
but why I’m expecting from you to understand
why oh why do I still expect any good of you?
how could you ever when for all the time
you’ve held the knife from it’s back end
You don’t know the other end
you’ve never faced that pain, that ache
it’s sharpness, it’s brutality
the way it hurts, the way it pierces
I’m all bleeding and dying
yet you seem so indifferent coz you’ve
never felt the other end
it’s easy to shout and walk away
yet so hard to stay silent and save things from breaking
