Who needs another one, who runs you down and makes you feel never good enough?
Who needs another one, who hurts your soul by their incessant coming and going?
Who needs to hold on, to the hurts and pains and regrets of dreams dashed?
Who needs to hold on, to the bags of hurt gifted us by those we once cared deeply about?
Who needs to be, bogged and haunted down by the memories of times past?
Who needs to feel, forever guilty for no just cause and happenings that couldn't be helped?
Shaking free from unpleasant memories, stepping lightly forward. Cutting ties from those who batter our being so badly, reaching out to embrace true love. Getting up, when we stumble and fall, keeping faith when all hope is lost. Re-prioritizing our definition of what is dear, unburdening our hearts and embracing life as it comes.
Who needs to be blinded by hurt, when life's true blessings unfold before our eyes daily?
