Through the Eyes of the Broken

 
Have you ever seen the world
Through the eyes of the broken
Where their hearts are shattered
Battered souls overwhelmed and crushed
Their whole world falling apart
Crashing down like a meteorite
Exploding upon impact
Destroying everything in sight

Broken people walk near you
They are all around
You will never see it in their eyes
Just how shattered their hearts are
The hellish road their feet are walking
Immense pain immerses their being
The best of us conceal it
Wearing the mask we want you to see

Think about what you choose to say
Consider those battles you cannot see
Reach out to the brother who needs you
Comfort the sister who cries herself to sleep
Tell someone how much you love them
Never forget how a simple word
Can lift their weary spirits
Love on them; trust me, they need it

Have you ever seen the world
Through the eyes of the broken
You’ve been there before
Those painful memories still remain
While they may be in the past for you
Others are experiencing that painful reality now
Let them know they are not alone
Because they certainly feel that way
