Everyone just started to expect;
You were the one that was always strong,
The one that others chose to lean on,
It was your shoulder that the tears fell upon,
And your hands that wiped them softly away.
It was your heart that broke each time you heard the tales of others' woes.
But when the time came,
And you found your own heartbreak,
You came to find,
You had to be strong -
You were alone, all along.
How easy it is to judge the choices of others,
To assume that the path that another walks is paved with roses and flowers.
Every choice we make in life
Bring with them effects we do not anticipate.
So do not assume you know another's pain
When all your eyes perceive is their supposed ease
