Spare a Moment

Spare a moment
Look beyond what you see
There might be a hidden tear -
Behind the smile you envy

Spare a moment
Listen beyond what you hear
There might be an aching truth -
Behind the lie told out of fear.

Spare a moment
Walk with someone -
Travel their road with them
You need not step into their shoes
Just walk besides them
And, you might just discover
Something, you must have earlier ignored.
Each one has his own story to share
Their lips reluctant and no one to hear.
