Take My Hand

June 20, 2016

People are very fond of giving away what they need most themselves. ‘Nuff said.

I know you are weak my friend,
I am too.
I know you’re broken,
I’ve been there too.

But for now let’s just live.

Have a day.

Shower yourself with care and kindness,
one you’ve been saving for others.

The morrow wouldn’t be so bad, trust me.

You can scream, you can cry or you can write
either way you’d wake up to a better light.

Now smile and keep your head high,
for I’m here with you
we’ll go through even the highest tide.

Together may be we’d understand
the beauty of life
and may be one day
we’d even dance.

I’ve never been good with expressing myself in person. One of my favourite tutors used to call me Little Miss Understood – since being misunderstood was my specialty. Get it? Oh, I miss him and his puns. Anyway, writing letters became a habit and this is something I wrote a while back for a friend who was going through a hard time. Looking back, it seems like I was the one who needed it the most. The irony..
