HAVE YOU BEEN ON YOUR KNEES TOO LONG ?

when to stand, when to kneel

sometimes you must stand on your feet

but know when you should kneel

and not be blinded by the sun

but take the warmth you feel


there is a balance in all things

the fulcrum is your soul

you have to know what things are lost

and what you can control


it's hard absorbing comfort

when you're wary of mere touch

have you been on your knees too long

or standing way too much ?


in friendships there are circles formed

much stronger than a line

but when you set up boundaries

it's harder to define


the blanket when unraveled

will not keep away the cold

you have to know who you should cut

and who you need to hold


your armor keeps out danger

but true joy you'll never clutch

have you been on your knees too long

or standing way too much ?
