Those eyes have stories to tell

Those eyes have stories to tell

That person has been dragged through hell

Fighting to hold back many tears, their inner voice screams begging someone anyone hears

They get dressed and punch a clock 

they've hiked a difficult road 

Not many dare to walk

We never truly know someone 

we can't see the damage life's challenging times have done

Truly listen to strangers and family because 

Those eyes have stories to tell

An intense and much-needed

An intense and much-needed lesson in tolerance and empathy. How true that we should listen more and judge less because we have no idea what struggles others are going through. 

 

"Those eyes have stories to tell"  Well said! Beautiful guidance.
