For all those who love and trust easily but are betrayed and hurt in return, this is for all such souls to make them strong with the power that they have it within themselves.

She was kind, gentle and soft

She thought, cared and loved

She was there when someone needed her

She caressed a crying heart

But, her love was just too much for the world to handle

She was betrayed and ruined too often

Until one day, she was completely broken.

Broken in the heart and in the soul

Afraid of loving and caring again

Afraid to caress a heart again

Afraid to even caress herself

But, she made herself understand

The crack in her heart is just a path,

A path for the light to enter

And make her whole again,

Whole to love and care again

To be strong and face all that life has to offer

But, this time not for the world

This time, for her ownself

And, be happy for herself in the end

Because, now she knows where her true happiness lies

Not in the world, but inside her own soul.
