My weakness is, I care to much. And the scars remind us, the past is real, I tear my heart open, just to feel.

They say keep your head up, they say trod on
They say make your mark, they say shine on,
They say you can do it, they say you’ll be okay
And I say no, I’m falling further, I can’t go on
I say, have you been where I am? Do you know me?
I say it hurts to try when I go nowhere, I say no.
They say, think positive, they say they will help,
They say I’m here, they say we’ll get through this.
I say no, you can’t help me, no one can, I’m helpless,
I say, why do you care? I say leave me alone, go away.
They say no, they say their here, its okay, talk to me.
I say it’s too hard, I can’t. I say-
They say, don’t worry, we are here, we won’t leave you
I say, how do you know that? I’ve been promised before?
They say we care, we understand, we don’t want to go.
They say we’ll help you through this, every step of the way.
They say we won’t go anywhere, it’s okay to feel this way
I say… okay.
They say… okay.

I was just thinking one day about a time in my life when people were trying to help me, even though i didnt want them to, because i thought i could do everything on my own. i got tired of peopel promissing me that they woudl always be there and then leaving me, and finally i met someone that promised me they woudl always be tere, and their still there, they helped me learn to trust again, so this poem is sorta about them, and how they helped me.
