What is this thing that you charge me with knowing?
Should, I , also, be miserable to know that there is misery among us?
I can not speak for those who will not speak for themselves.
I will not deny that some are miserable.........I will answer their call, but I will not be made to be miserable.
Should I give up hope, gaiety, to address that some of us are miseralble?
Should I fret tears that are not mine?
Or should, I rather, stand up and give voice to the tears that are worthy of naming?
In my own personal experience.........some people are not happy, unless they have something to bitch about.............those who need help, have a "quieter" presence..........
There is pride, and there is expectation and need.
We need to look between the lines.
