Hurting became breathing,
the toxic lies led me believing,
played with my trust in exchange for temporary lust,
every touch, every kiss marked a bruise and
I became indistinguishable behind all the abuse.
Enough is enough – say no to the pain,
what is the point if it’s all loss and no gain?
Overcome the hurt and stand up to your fears,
stand up to your sadness and overcome the tears.
The pursuit of happiness is not from another,
another can even hurt one’s own brother.
The pursuit of happiness lies within,
so before you say I love you, question yourself: do I love me?
When you find your answer, you’ll find your key –
The key to happiness…
just watch and see.
