This is for a love I carry deep within my heart.
Giving me the inspiration to stay out of the dark.
Stiring some feelings that are deep inside of me.
Scaring me enough I think I must flee.
Seeing it as the easiest path to take.
Yet knowing that isn’t part of my fate.
Learning to take whatever life throws at me.
All the while not wearing my heart on my sleeve.
Even though we may each feel different about us.
Only builds hope for more to discuss.
Giving up and going our separate ways.
Has given me many sadden days.
Leaving with my head feeling bent.
Putting my chin in my chest and leaving a dent.
Priding myself on holding my head up high.
Even though there are many days I wish I would just die.
I know stronger is the way to be.
Some days are harder just for me to be me.
Feelings of the darkness pour all around.
I will still walk with my feet firm on the ground.
