It’s all right to take a breather sometimes

To walk away and take your time

Or drink iced water topped with lemon or lime

But please don’t forget what you left behind

 

It’s okay to dream and forget

The horrors of the world that may be too hard to bear

If reality is crushing your soul

Run to the mountains until you’re back whole

 

Never mind the judgments the world seems to pass

To us who are hunted by our past

 

You can cry your eyes until they can no more

You can scream out loud until you throat’s sore

You can rant your way through the pain and anger

I’ll be there to guard you from the monsters

 

I won’t be pretentious enough to say

That life will work out some way

The truth is life is already hard as it is

Without the lies people say as they please

 

Reality is not a smooth road; it’s full of curves and bumps

So learn to buckle your seatbelt

Because you’re in for this till the final destination
