Just Because // a poem



just because
someone acts okay
it doesn't mean they are

just because
their face doesn't show their hurt
just because
tears aren't streaming down their face
it doesn't mean they aren't hurting

just because
they haven't told you about
the burdens they carry alone
the tears they cry in silence
the battles they fight each night
the pain they fear will never fade
it doesn't mean they don't want to

be open, dears
be there for each other
be the listening ear
to the one who needs to talk
be a caring soul
to a heart that needs hope
be the shoulder
someone needs to cry on

just because
they don't wear their heart on their sleeve
it doesn't mean they don't want our love

let's love boldly
let's love until it hurts
let's love like Jesus loves

just because
one day you'll be the one
who needs someone to pray for them
but is afraid to ask



Sometimes I write poems on my phone at 11:40 PM and email them to myself so I'll find them in the morning... And sometimes I decide to share them with y'all a month later, just because maybe someone needs to hear this.

  1. Oh, Faith! This beautiful! All I could think about was one of my characters from a 911 story I've been working on. I'm so gonna reference this for inspiration!
