Behind These Eyes - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

There is a story
behind these eyes
Unwritten words
from a life gone by
Of trials-of tribulations
yesterdays of memories

There is a story
behind these eyes
One that few have ever heard
of shooting stars and dreams
Some come and gone
others in silent wait

Behind these eyes
hard times and better days
Happiness and sorrow
all wrapped up together
raised dirt poor
fought for fame and fortune
walked away and just let it go
Found more within the heart
that couldn't be bought or sold
Few have gotten to know
behind these eyes

There is a story
behind these eyes
A unheard voice
Sometimes a smile
sometimes tears

There is a story
behind these eyes
In verse
song and rhyme
Following the beat of a different drummer
just turning another page
into tomorrow...

    A wonderful poem Daniel. I often wonder what peoples ''story'' is. There's so much of life that stays with each person and never gets shared. That's sad. I enjoyed this poem very much...it really makes you think about those you meet. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
