Because we are the only ones who can make changes for our own true happiness. Be brave. Save yourself first, then everyone else will be taken care of too
Hearing sobs of rain that start the storm
And damaged dreams, already worn.
I've years of battered books
And scribbled songs.
I've years of something missing.
Attempting to numb the pain
And fuel the decision I'll make wrong, again.
I've years of overlook
And staying strong.
I've years of heartache hissing.
Trying to keep these tears inside
And looking for a hero to hide behind.
I've years of being mistook
And feeling wrong.
I've years of sadly wishing.
I'm being courageous and brave.
I'm not waiting anymore to be saved.
I'm taking control of my heart and my health.
Right here, right now, I have saved myself.
