I walk
Trying to hard to be brave
I dread to blink
lest they see my tears.

I sneak
Through their raised brows
I dare not blink
Lest they see my fears

That was then

Fast forward to now

Grey glasses
Green grasses
Glasses that shine
Now mask my tears with glittering stars

Smiling faces
now greet me on every side

Googly glasses
Dark glasses in the sunshine
I can now see clearer
because I've got mine.
