When a reality becomes too much for someone,
They may try to hide, they may try to run,
Yet somehow they're stuck being someone they shun.
When a person tries to protect,
They may lose themselves and forget,
The way life makes you regret,
The way your past is already set.
And for those of us who feel strong,
We find our strength doesn't last long,
Forcing yourself to belong,
Will only make you feel wrong.
Don't lock emotions, unlock your empathy,
Don't be too broken, you're only an entity,
You don't have to cry, it won't last forever;
In light, shadows will always sever.
The key to happiness is only a phrase,
Smiling can be classed as a repetitive phase,
Except that feelings contradict it;
Your heart never willing to admit this.
A key to moving on is to find yourself,
Some believe they can do this alone with wealth,
Some think they find this by devoting to fun,
But sometimes nothing has to be done.
Take a breath in,
Look at what you have,
Try to begin,
Don't be held back.
Holding it in will only cause pain,
Saying you're okay is a lie,
Go out and maybe you'll gain,
A new overall insight.
Before we start, we need a way to observe,
Before we continue we need a way to make light,
Before we give up, we need a way to gain nerve,
In life we really need to do more than try.
Trying can only get you so far. How many times have you tried to tell someone that you're upset and then changed the topic because you feel like a burden or as if they won't understand.
Don't feel like you're alone because there will always be people who understand.
