ADD TO MY FAVORITES
and others cut me to the core,
it’s up to me how I respond,
to put an end to even more.
When I’ve been hurt, and when I feel
I’ve been forgotten and ignored,
I know I need to guard my heart.
It’s where my sentiments are stored.
If I feel angry, bitter, sad -
like poison, feelings will erode
compassion, kindness, tenderness,
and love that once from my heart flowed.
Refuse to be a victim here.
I know that I am in control
of thoughts and feelings that I have,
and so I choose to guard my soul.
I have a choice, continue on
and let myself be beaten down,
believe the lies - or rise above,
dig in, and turn my thoughts around.
It’s time to set some boundaries,
and then I’ll take some quiet time
to focus on what’s pure and true -
to nurture, heal this heart of mine.
