A girl surrounded by sadness, her eyes hold a deep inner sorrow and a feeling of unworthiness.
She smiles with held back tears, confusion is set in her mind, and yet all she really wants is to be understood.
All some people want is to talk where others just want someone there, even if they sit in silence just having a fellow soul to share their pain with is enough.
The look this girl had took me back, I wanted to ask what was wrong yet I knew I would not get a coherent answer, it must be very lonely for her being surrounded by people who cannot see she is crying out for help.
How is it everywhere I look I can see struggles behind the masks many wear and yet others cannot? Am I seeing a cast reflection of myself or perhaps it is because when I was in that place I wanted the same thing….
I shall take a step back and offer a hand that can be taken if she wants, I shall not unlock her emotions as I have done with people in the past. This time I shall wait.
