by Jose Luis Piña
(Baltimore, MD)

Behind closed doors
who can hear
who can help
tears roll down my face
and it seems nobody cares
I will not show you my pain
I will not show you my sorrow
for I know I'll be here tomorrow
I cry all day and cry all night
not knowing if I'll be alright
I can't stop this pain
I live in fear
in fear of life itself
for the pain I carry
is hard to bear
if you can hear me
listen close
and I bet you'll hear
my tears as they hit the floor
