You can water your plants. You can walk your dog everyday. You can feed the birds in the park. But the day that you forget to sustain your plants, or are too busy to cater to your dogs need for the outdoor experience, or run out of bird food for the park, things tend to fall out of balance. Plants survive, so do the dogs and the birds. They start to believe in an entitlement to your generous acts. Something I've learned is that it's not always your job to take care of someone else. There's always rainstorms, back doors, and picnic crumbs waiting for their turn to take care of someone.
I used to feel pressure for having to be the source of someone's happiness.
It's easier to say I'm fine, just tired As if my reply was a movie Cutting out the details and generalizing In a way, not giving the whole story Read me to know more Though it may be long and tedious Only for the people who want more Who will love me more serious When I say I'm tired I am tired of life So when I become more distant I'm just trying to survive
I just wanted to spill all my secrets to someone I've kept them hidden for so long and I couldn't anymore I wanted someone who could carry half the weight I've been carrying in my fragile heart that no longer can survive instead it feels as if I'm carrying the weight they're carrying of my own heaviness.
When I was a young man protected by youth for no fear did I have In what lay ahead With a pack on my back of I'd go without care In the world for At the moment no thoughts of tomorrow For I had youth on my side I would sleep In fields or down by the sea were ever I laid my head would become my home for the time I was there had no fear for dangers of shadows that passed while I slept In the night for had youth on my side But as I grew older fears crept In so more much aware of the dangers lurking out there and think our lucky I was to survive made It to the retirement a time when young I thought never to see for when I was young had youth on my side and lived the moment I was In and had no fear of death
For I was young and had youth on my side no fear of death did I have
When I learned to love others, I stopped loving myself. I gave all that I had to people who never cared enough to deserve it and I lost myself in the process. I became an empty vessel of who I was and was more hollow than I had ever been. I was a mannequin of what people thought I should be. You learn a lot when you become nothing. When you are empty to yourself and the world and nothing seems like it will bring you back. Eventually, you find something that teaches you that loving yourself first will always be worth your time. Learning this is how you survive.
Lived so much In dreams I'd forgotten what reality was, but now I'm back focused have a future no to where I'm going In life that a positive start to a new future at least I never lost the will to fight and never give till It's done
Nevever give up till It's over keep fighting for What Is right In order to survive
