What if I told you?

healthy boundaries & mental wellness are connected

Colorado, USA

What if I told you that everything in your heart
Was going to be pulled completely apart?

Every smile that is shared
Is another ‘hit’ to be bared

You decided to dim your light
Because you were tired of the fight

Every way you turn
Something started to burn

You protect your friendships with something fierce
Only hoping the dysfunction doesn’t pierce

The weight of your world seems so rough
Remind yourself that it’s YOU, that is TOUGH

Excuses are made to belittle your worth
But did they know, it’s time for your [re]birth?

So I say it once again
What if I told you…

That everything in your heart
Is going to be pulled completely apart.
