Don’t Push Them Away: A Poem
Start writing a post

The world that surrounds you is so bitter and hallow.

Everyone loves making assumptions about others – always shallow.

All they see is your "image" never being enough

And you wonder why you always want to cover up?

You fake your voice, your smiles, and even your thoughts

The makeup is a wonderful mask to hide behind – until it falls off.

Fake people, enjoying how their deception makes others feel.

It seems like every relationship you have isn't real.

Every person finds a way to use you – sucking your soul dry

They push and toss you around – and you never ask them why.

That is of course - until they leave in a huff

And complain you weren't there for them enough

You are now alone with very few who care.

But those that do, they have so much love to share.

It feels better to push people away

Because you feel like nobody will stay.

You cannot imagine anyone liking the real you behind the person you display

Your genuine self - the one that you try and try to keep tucked away

Those who have stayed though – have seen the real you

And they still want you - it feels to good to be true.

They see your worth, despite your flaws

They connect to you every time your mask falls.

They won't take advantage of your vulnerability

All they want is to help you see yourself clearly.

They know you're insecure, and so are they

Since they are genuine, they were always targeted by the fakes

Because bad people can sniff good people from miles away

They take everything from them since they don't have the heart to say "no way"

The ones who stayed are in fact just like you;

They were misused by the people who they trusted the most too.

If they can see your value, one day you will see it - it's true.

And maybe just maybe, you can help them see it too.

Because when good people stick together the world becomes brand new.
