It's Worth It

We walk alone
We hide our faces
We put on a smile
And go through each day as a shadow.

We are so busy making others happy
That we don't even try to cross our own abyss of challenge.

We can't balance on that wooden beam and so

We fall instead.

And we keep falling,
Unable to grasp our solid hold of the world

And we lose ourselves, relying on others

To catch us again.

Well I say forget that,
I will rely on you
But I will not be turned to scrap metal in the process.

I will continue across that beam
No matter what bullets you have to shoot me with.

And the day that I cross the abyss
Of people trying to drag me into its endless depths
Of sadness and self-ridicule

I will turn

And I will wave for you to follow,
Because I will give you a smile
And remind you that

It is worth the fight

It is worth the struggle to keep balance

But you must outstretch your arms
And walk with one foot in front of the other,

A straight line across the wooden beam
And as you cross
You will see the light on the other side as well

And those voices will grow distant
As you decide that

They are not worth your suffering

They are not worth the effort and strength
You put into each day,
Each step that will get you to where I am as well.

So keep your head up,

And just keep moving forward.

Someday, I like to think. . .
