happiness deferred

having seen so many walk down this path before
around here people don’t talk about thier mistakes
perhaps not learning from them is an easier choice to make
playing as hard as you can on broken glass
if it was you there would be no reason to ask
now you know better than to struggle through each day
empathy being what reveals how much people are hurting
sometimes things in life want to break you down
so you have to be strong enough to persevere through
doing the best that you can to help others and stay true to
ending this negativity that society heaps on top of you ’cause
finally you saw the glow of inner peace again
every day now like a gift from a great friend
really staying strong is no longer a tough hill to climb
requesting as much of your time as you wish to provide
each minute with you is bliss that helps me survive
don’t ever doubt what i do for you
