Why Do Eyes Not See Me - Poem by Katherine Kay Graven

Why do eyes not see me
I am here why can't they see
I look for them but they don't look for me
What is the reason they will not see

I know they know what is being done
But all they do is turn and run
Is it that they don't want to see
I guess it is my fault what is happening to me

Why do their ears not hear
Am I lost in the mind of my on fear
I want to scream but my voice is weak
I guess it is my pride that will not speak

Why does their touch make me want to run
Do I see me as the bad one
I do things hoping I can leave
Is it me that just don't believe

The taste of hate is in my mouth
I know it is me and I have no doubt
I look in the mirror and just don't see
Why anyone would want to help me

The smell of death it seems so close
but everyone seems to think it a joke
but the smell is real and I don't care
For it is what happens and for me it is fair

So I close my eyes as if not to see
the people that is trying to help me
For they are wrong and I am right
I just want to end this fight

Now as I lie with the truth in my heart
I know who it was who tore me apart
For if it wasn't for the Angels in disguise
I would have believed all of the Devil's lies

But my life is worth living so I can be
Someone like the Angel who saved me
For my life is God's joy and death has no peace
I'm glad someone took the time and care about me

So if this is you who cries in the dark
Open your soul to what is in your heart
You are never alone and you can become
An Angel that will save the life of someone

God bless you and protect you
and help you see the light
No matter what
you fight for
your life
