Often it’s the desperation behind cruel and hurtful words
the frustration that keeps building when there’s no one to understand
thoughts and misunderstandings that are left unspoken
end up becoming bitter and rotten
alas they are vented out and heard only in disputation
Behind every argument, every disagreement
is the need for someone to listen and understand
Behind every argument, every disagreement
lies the insecurities, hurt and fears
Behind every every argument, every disagreement
exists the need to clear away all what’s causing hurt

At times the fragile ego can be easily hurt
it chooses to scream and shout as it’s way of asking for help
the loud voice and noise is it’s way of asking to stop
when the windows to self expression are closed
every different knock, every different sound
petrifies the soul and mind living and dying alone
Behind every argument, every disagreement
lies the sound and sight of all the injuries and wounds
Behind every argument, every disagreement
exists the prodigious fears unable to be overcome by trust
Behind every argument, every disagreement
exists the struggle to cope up and adjust.
