My Battles

Life isn’t all just gumdrops and daisies,

And you won’t always  be there to save and protect me.

I need to learn to fight my own battles.

I need to be able to stand in the sun, no matter the blinding light, 

And you need to stop pushing me into the night.

Cause life isn’t and sugar and spice and all things nice,

It’s bumps and bruises and the moments.

Don’t lie don’t  try to sheild me,

Cause I can see past the fingers on my face, 

I can see the blood, the pain, and the heartache.

I have lived life for a while now,

I remember the things you think I’ve forgotten about,

I remember the dangers and the things I could risk,

But it’s just that,

That is what you could gain as well

Cause risks are worth taking 

And sometimes it’s a good thing that your heart is broken,

Because it reminds you that you have one to be broken

And life will push you down, and beat you to the ground,

And there’s nothing you can do about it

You can’t hold my hurt for me

You can’t take back the pain,

But you can ease it

So don’t try to protect or change me, cause that’s something I need to do on my own.

Life  isn’t all just gumdrops and daisies,

And you won’t always be there to save and protect me.
