It hurts at times

I often believe

I should stop myself from thinking,

Because the thoughts I have can sometimes hurt me,

About how life is and has always been.

I often believe

I should stop looking for all that I see,

Because some of those things I see often hurt me,

Because of the way life is and has always been.

I often believe

I should not try to hear the things that I hear for they hurt me,

Because of the way life is and has always been.

I should have lived the life of the three wise monkeys,

Hear no evil,

Speak no evil,

See no evil.

I often believe

That I should isolate myself from everything

And then nothing can hurt me

But that’s not me,

Pain is what let’s us know we’re alive

And I simply can’t stand by

And see wrongs continue

And people lose their rights,

I just can’t stand by

And except that this is all there is to life,

I need to help cast light,

I need to share the love,

Even if it hurts this much.
