Far Away Eyes - Poem by Terry Biscamp

In a world of far away eyes
Hearts that can't feel
Hands have grown cold
Nothing seems real.

The lonely
Are still alone
Cries go unheard
As they face the unknown.

Hearts that are bitter
Quick to place blame
Running from truth
Choking on their shame.

In his world
He's the only one there
Nobody reaches out
To show him they care.

In her dark room
Her tears still fall
And no one answers
Her hearts painful call.

A child who suffers
Knowing no affection
Wilts away in the world
Plagued by rejection.

And they wander the streets
In their invisible way
Because all turn away
Deaf to what they say.

Disappearing into themselves
Doesn't anyone see?
A smile, a gentle touch
May help set them free.

In a world of far away eyes
Hearts that won't feel
Arms that won't reach
Souls never heal.

How sad that it is
When all claim to care
But never reach out
To what is plainly there..

A gentle smile, some comforting words and love is all required to bring light to a lonely child.It can change her life.There are many neglected children around us who need our care and we seem oblivious to their sufferings.Thank you for bringing to our focus such an issue of much significance through your poem that bespeaks of your kind heart.
