shedding negative burdens

shedding negative burdens

 

you emerged outta the chaos and debris

lookin’ somethin’ holy from this unholy war

 

those around you

strugglin’ somethin’ fierce

 

givin’ hope to them

that there is something better to come within time

 

drop your guard and any intentions ya might be placin’ onto others for just a moment

(you cannot speak on behalf of those you do not know)

and listen

 

ya got an entire life to talk

and i’m sure you already spoke enough for the both of us

so this ain’t gonna kill you

 

(listen)

 

i know that this broken heart has got ya feelin’ like there’s nothin’ good out there anymore

 

that they’re all the same

 

nogoodbadevil

and what have you

 

know this

 

they all came into your life for a reason

 

sure

it was god awful when it happened at the time

and ya might’ve wanted to give up

 

but you were NEVER knocked down

 

not even at your worst

 

you’re here

for a reason

 

you’re here

and nothing can change that

 

remember that

but wear nothing on your sleeves

 

let down your guard and prideful stories you’ve been rehearsing and saving for the right chance to share about those who have damaged you

 

 

this isn’t an opportunity for you to showcase your scars from the battlefield

because we all get ’em

 

this ain’t no oneupmanship or competition

 

this is life

 

we all have a story

 

and

sometimes

shit happens

even to good people

 

but it doesn’t mean you have to carry it with you for the rest of your life

 

stop chasin’ those memories

and start makin’ new ones
