All Things Considered

All things considered, I’m doing quite well

For I am no stranger to heartbreak


Or failure.

When you have been let down by so many 

So many times

You become quite the expert at moving forward. 

Drudging through the mud and the muck of empty promises

And the realization that you have once again been played the fool.

For in the end, if your actions were rooted in love

There is no reason to feel ashamed.

You simply took a chance

A chance that anyone would have taken.

The prospect of something so frighteningly real it takes your breath away.

And when you find you were wrong

It is so unbelievably painful

That for a moment it may seem like you will never rise again.

But you will.

And some day you will look back on this moment and be thankful

For the scars on our hearts 

May be just the reminder we need

To keep us from making the same mistakes

In the end there is only you

So dust yourself off

Learn from the past 

And create one hell of a future!
