The open eye

The open eye can see a lot

each tear that drops

of those forgot,

The memories that somehow faded away

even some that are here to stay

 

The open eye can hear alot

each silent cry

that speaks so loud

each person that whines ” why am i alive?”

wondering if they will survive

 

The open eye can say a lot

scream , shout and yell i’m here

They don’t even gotta talk just show them you care

That the world still got some things  that’s fair

yea, I know its hard and yea you fighting strong just never forget i’m always near

 

So if you can

Open your eyes

The world kinda needs you

    I love how you use the perspective of the eye.i also like that you talk about thinks people see that the other perso most likely won’t want them to see.
