Thousand Things

I can't tell you about the thousand things that break my heart
The thousand cuts of injustice happening every day
I cannot meet the eyes of those around me
Without revealing the sadness and compassion swelling inside
An ocean of tears to spill out for each face
Arms not big enough to embrace them
Hands not strong enough to hold them all
Knowing behind each set of eyes is a whole new universe
A world of stories never given word
