Concern

Many people think she has it all
Trying to hit her up for the call
Wondering how she could be single
So they continue the efforts to mingle

Their primary concern is the look she presents
When they have no clue what’s going on in her head
Struggling to wake up each day
As the momentum of depression has its way

Still looking pleasant with a beautiful essence
But you can’t always believe the surface suggestion
The realness is what lies beneath the initial impression
So take the time to realize the entirety of a person

She puts on a good show for those around her
Even though her thoughts continue to burn
It’s not easy being at the center of a whirlwind of emotion
Seeing everything spin out of control with so much commotion

As I sit back and view from afar
I just hope she can hear my kind remarks
I hope they can reach the storm she’s in
Before another layer of her confidence thins

Pulse

A thread is all you need to make a pattern
So when times are tough stick with those who matter
Don’t try to go outside the lines
Keep holding tight to what’s right on the inside

There is always hope in tomorrow
For it begins a new day to move away from your sorrow
Letting go sometimes is the hardest thing
Especially if the one who hurts you the most is wearing a ring

Struggle is part of any process
The mountains and valleys help create progress
Without a test you never have a chance to build
So stick with this life and exercise your will

Reluctance

They say that there is strength in numbers
Finding out is allowing yourself to step forward
You never know how many others are out there
Facing the same circumstances that have you scared

Pressure never seems to cease
We put it on ourselves unconsciously
Even when we do recognize, it tends to increase
What is better though, is to experience peace

To alleviate a build up, some of it has to go
Throw it out, so you can once again grow

Struggle

Pent up in our own situations
Not looking out to the nations
Grasp tightly at our innovations
Without focusing much on relations

Many self centered, the focus on one
Aggravated and deliberately inebriated
To drown out all their senses for fun
Engaged and enraged because they don’t feel appreciated

Screaming for help in silence
A masquerade alone in a dark place
Entranced in their own internal violence
To weary to pursue a new space

So discouraged to find happiness
The demons that they battle
Mistake after mistake is made, becoming countless
Lashing out having others feel rattled

Caught up in this sense of self
Slowly fading away from hope
Ignoring the aid of others to get health
Continuing with blurry vision within life’s scope

Wake up to the fact you’re under attack
Don’t hide away in your weakness
Move forward and take your life back
Recognize that there is indeed a proper treatment

Pain will always come without choice
The method in which it affects you
Is where you will always have a voice
Choose to overcome in all that you do

Look out over the vast array
There are similar problems others face
You aren’t alone here today
Step out of that turmoil and allow yourself grace

Nobody has all the answers
Despite the many questions
The word is true of the Father
Invest in a relationship with the one who has no sin
