    It is hard to take - this world,
    this life
    I listen to you and
    try to look through your eyes
    it is when person after person
    lets' you down
    it is wanting someone so bad while
    not wanting anyone around
    it is when your mom has no idea
    who you are and never will
    it is people you don't know dumping on you
    not caring how you feel

    it is being walked out on
    with no explanation
    it is beign emotionally abused
    by the one you love
    It is being taken advantage of
    because you're kind
    it is the poeple afraid
    to look life in the eye
    I try to get to know trust better and
    to stop returning cynicism's calls
    I sometimes let people in
    while standing behind my walls

    I think
    I understand
    tell me, do
    I understand

    You say you cannot take it
    but you are so strong
    you told me once you weren't
    but I know you're wrong
    it is harder for those
    who feel deeply
    for those who
    see more clearly
    but you are a survivor
    not a rider but a driver
    your soul is old
    and it shines like gold
    your heart will mend itself and
    your emotions may always be a bit wild
    just love you
    and feel the love from others too
    from this big wide world
    there is so much of it coming to you.
