Call Her Emotionally Paralyzed - Poem by Ayesha Sartawi

Look into her eyes you will find a map leading to her pain
listen to her voice you will hear the hidden guilt driving her insane

you can ask her what is wrong? But I doubt that she will answer
you may think she is not strong but I think you should know better

you may want to be her friend but be aware she does not trust
you can try but I must warn you I don’t promise you much

if you ask her about life, love and hope I know she will say
life will end soon, love already did and hope lives far away

ask her when she last saw the bright yellow sun
ask if she faces her fears or if she decides to cry or run

She will smile and she will be surprised to know the sun shines still
she will also say life's left no energy or tears to run to cry or to will

Ask her how she became who she is but i dont know what she'll reveal
she'll try to escape she'll try to run away because its too painful to feel
