Blind to the Pain



We are blinded by their fame

Unable to see their pain.

The hurt they hide so well

Until it comes out

In ways they can not control.

We are blind to their pain

They hurt just as we do

Cry and grieve too,

Yet somehow, someway

We expect them to be


Have this magic ability

To hide their pain

Without breaking

We don’t want to see 

What they feel

Instead we expect them

To entertain us

Without educating us…
