A single raindrop falls to the ground
no one seems to notice
yet as many raindrops fall to the ground
everyone run for cover.
Just like the raindrops,
no single life on earth can be made the same,
feel the same, look the same.
My life is single raindrop,
no one seems to notice.
Notice the quiet times as being bitchy
too good to talk to anyone.
Notice the tears, she's just having a bad day.
Notice the irritability, she's just stressed out.
However, that raindrop holds
years of pain from abuse,
suppressed memories and an
internal ticking time bomb.
Yet no one seems to notice.
The cries for help over the years, all but ignored.
Grow up, face the world like an adult.
You insignificant little drop.
