If you

I’ve been thinking a lot about my life lately
I hope it’s been treating you well
Some days I wake up excited
Other days I get overwhelmed

If you try to skip the pain you’ll miss the lessons
If you try to cover the hurt that others have caused
If you try to pretend, you may be able to hide a little while
If you try to be real with others, will they remain long enough to listen

This life can be exhausting
This life can be hard to understand
This life can be full of ups and downs
This life can be full of people who don’t want to comprehend what others are feeling

If you were me
If you took the time to listen
If you were me would you be happier
If you were in my shoes, would it make a difference
