Each poem I write has a meaning behind it. This is piece definitely meaningful. I wrote it for a few particular people in my life (whom I will not mention by name). These people test me and my patience, but I love them too much to sit back and watch them destroy themselves day by day. However, like I say in the writing below... I can only do so much before I say "I can do no more".
Look into the mirror and see what we all clearly see.
Selfish, prideful and uncaring... that's who you've come to be.
Life is more than indulging in yourself and using others just for fun.
Take hold of yourself and look within your heart; you'll see your journey has only begun.
Take time to love and time to reflect.
Without doing these things... you'll soon lose all respect.
Can't you just put your old ways to rest?
Can't you see it's for the best?
I don't wanna watch you die.
I'll turn away before I cry.
There's only so much I can do before I say "I can do no more".
Changing might become easier when you're left alone and when everyone walks out the door.
I wish you knew how precious your life is to me.
I don't wanna leave your side or ever become your enemy.
I'm getting tired of holding the hand of someone who pushes me away.
It's hard to go... but it's even harder to stay.
Wake me when you realize what's right and what's wrong.
Until then, I'll be elsewhere and will be hoping I don't have to wait too long.
