Don’t Abandon

Burning blue eyes

You see through to people’s hearts

You perceive souls with your own

You feel deeply while you see

Their pain, fear and ignorance

You sense the arrogance, confusion and rejection

And you still fall under the weight of the world

On your shoulders as if it’s yours to carry and heal

When your own feelings are too much to bear alone


You are powerful and strong

You have so much courage and bravery

But you have spent so much of it

Living and surviving, keeping your life full

And your heart beating, lungs heaving

You are running yourself ragged

When there are none to boost you up

None to fill your wings with air

When you suffocate from burdens


Your power is shining through

When you are empty and yet still breathing

You have such strength to carry on

When you feel small and weak

You have such courage to walk

When you feel you have none to walk with

You are brave, so brave

When you stand again after being beaten down

And while you feel alone overwhelming you

I am here

I see you

You cannot be forgotten
