Why Can'T They See - Poem by Layla Ivison

Running and no where to go
Speaking and no one listening
Crying and no one to wipe my tears
Hurting and no one to turn to
Suffering and afraid, scared to let it show
Choking and no one to help
Looking and see nothing
Head hurts and nothing to dull the pain
Eyes tired and can't sleep
Alone and no one to hold me
Heart broken why can't they see
