Tired Eyes !

They speak !
Sometimes out of sadness, sometimes out of sheer excitement,
Sometimes out of anger, sometimes out of sheer frustration !
Now they are muted.
Tired eyes !

They look around !
Sometimes out of curiosity, sometimes out of sheer boredom,
Sometimes seeking attention, sometimes beseeching acknowledgment.
Now they are still.
Tired eyes !

They listen !
Sometimes to the sound of silence, sometimes the stories that the world tells,
Sometimes to the laughter of a happy heart, sometimes the sobbing soul.
Now they are indifferent.
Tired eyes !

Tired they are, not so lifeless, though
They still twinkle, they still glow
momentarily though !
Seeking solace from within,
Tired eyes !
