All things considered, I’m doing quite well
For I am no stranger to heartbreak
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!
