  • If Only They Knew- Understanding Poem by Angel Benjamin

    It's funny how she can easily fake a smile
    She tells everyone she's doing fine
    But when she's alone for just a little while
    She starts to cry

    Its sad how she feels so boxed in by society
    She doesn't think she can even be herself
    Because she's afraid that her personality
    Will send the ones she cares about to someone else

    It's not fun when she's sitting by herself, wondering who she is
    Trying not to cry because others are around
    If only they knew about her frequent tears
    They'd understand why she stares at the ground

    They'd understand a lot of things
    Why she's so quiet
    Why she's so scared
    Why she seems distant even though she cares

    Why she sometimes cries herself to sleep at night when she feels she can't think
    Why she isn't happy because she's so incomplete

    When she's with her friends
    She's a different person
    Her happiness doesn't seem to end
    And her eyes glisten

    She laughs a lot and seems okay
    And her friends don't even know
    That she wants to break down and cry
    And let all of her feelings go

    If only they knew about her frequent tears
    They'd understand why she stares at the ground

    They'd understand a lot of things
    Why she's so quiet
    Why she's so scared
    Why she seems distant even though she cares

    Thank you. This poem feels as if it is written by one of my friends. She is my ex girlfriend so she let me into how she felt. And it is so much like this poem. Thank you for telling the world how it feels to be in this position. Beautiful poem.
