Sad Eyes - Poem by Jessy Liz

There's a sadness in your eyes
And it carries into mine
They say I look just like you

If they only knew how right..
There's a slow deliberation
That weaves into your step

They say I act just like you
They don't know how right they seem to get
There's a quiet double standard

That hangs onto your smile
They say I smile just like you
How can they be so right?
Worry lines your brow

And touches your wise eyes
They say I take after you
Oh, I think they're right.
