When life deals a blow
and we want to recoil
there is a distant glow
that helps us through.
The simple stretch out of a hand
to guide us along
let us know it’s alright
and we’re not really as alone as we think we are.
One simple touch
the brush of a cheek
to let someone know
we’re there, alongside them.
Not the physical sense that most would think
but the positive reinforcement of light and healing energy to pull us from dark places
let us know that the journey and turmoil we face
is not all that there is at the moments such blows are dealt.
there is an invisible protective barrier that no one can get through
this is the inner being you know is the true you.
Fighting so hard against the pain
knowing to reach out and find your balance again.
Some of know us how to read a cry out for help
and there we stand, arms out, giving positive words
to build you back up again.
Your pain is felt down to the inner core
but can remind you what your purpose is for.
Help you find ways to trudge past the wastelands
the hurtful words thrown at you despite your best defenses
for the odd one that breaks through and leaves the slightest bruise on your soul
we’ve got the first aid kit to help you regain control.
Oh sure, they will try to dig in their heels
scramble your brain like a pit full of eels
but remember one thing they can’t take from you
your purest soul’s energies
that make you the real you.
Many people may not see your pain
but small rays of sunshine help dry up your rain.
Lift you up, dust you off
let you know it’s alright to fall
but won’t allow you hide back in the corner of the wall.
We remind you that part of that wall has come down
so don’t build it up again
or wear that old frown.
A small hurt has pain but only for a short time.
Take a deep breath and remember one thing
they don’t own your soul
you don’t owe them the art of falling backwards
keep moving forwards
the way that you planned it.
We are your band-aid
your reminder of truth.
You’re surrounded by brightness
that lights your path
help is always there
just remember to ask.
