So many things build up it gets hard to cope,
If I could I would help everyone regain their hope
And I know I usually mismanage
But my intention is never to vanish
When the stress becomes a mess,
I can't begin to decompress
And the rest just falls apart and I run further and further just to depart.
We forget to re-charge…especially with problems at large.
Taking on the world isn't easy for even the strongest of wills
And I don't want to solve and over booked calendar with hop-a-long pills.
So when life seems to have its grip,
I NEED to remember it's alright to relax from it.
When life turns to strife
And feels more like a fight and I've lost all insight
I don't need permission to get my mind right,
To sit back and regain my sight.
As much as I want to do, for every single one of you
I need to remind, that there's weight on my mind, I'll sit
And explain instead of hide.
No one said, "Life is easy!" And for me, well I just get mentally queasy.
Keep in your mind and your heart that it's ok to fall apart.
But when it comes time to use that mind and regain that shine…
Just rip off that Band-Aid, breath and feel that strength and you'll be fine.
