Come sit with me a while
Dare you share your pain

You can cry your life away

Or you can take a risk and let go

 

Don’t trust in me, trust in yourself

I can never and will never make you promises

To long we have allowed ourselves to be held captive

Stuck in the obligations and expectations of others

 

How long before you see the past has gone

Learn and accept the lessons, move on and evolve

You could be anything you choose

So make the choice and start living

 

I can tell you that nothing will change

Unless you give your consent and put the change in motion

Don’t keep holding on to the past

Just to justify your pain and gain attention

 

Don’t you see that the only thing worse

Than a bad past is holding on to the pain

Forcing your self to relive it everyday

As though you want to feed your fears

 

The people have gone

They can no loner inflict pain upon you

So why is it still raining

Only you can answer this

 

No man is their brother’s keeper

We are the keepers of ourselves

You can hold your self a prisoner

Or you can give your self forgiveness and freedom

 

I can promise this

Nothing will change

Unless you put the change in motion

Is the attention from sympathy all you crave

 

Never do we see our own beauty

Never can we believe in our blessings

Unless someone else blesses them first

You must learn to believe in yourself

 

Ask yourself all about you

Who are you living your life for

Are you being yourself or someone you think you should be

What do you want from this life


Come sit with me a while

Come share your pain

You can cry your life away

Or you can take a risk and let go

this is really freaking awesome!!!!! I especially love the bit about not holding onto the past because when people do that...I dunno how to really describe it...it's just no good and it messed with your head.

Take that risk, get over feeling sorry for yourself and just jump, let go and live.
Scary but so damn worth it.
