Save This For You

Save your self
She warns others
Speaking from experience
harsh lessons that had to be learned

Her past has been difficult
Actions chosen carefully
caring intentions not always giving her the results she wanted

But she is doing just fine
She’s whole and almost complete
She’s true to her heart
She’s nothing but herself

Goals set
Goals reached
She’s on her way

Now she speaks to others
and shares the hard lessons she has tackled
keeping in mind we must crawl before we can walk

Take what you need
Take what you want
Give it back
But always save yourself

This poem reminds me of one of my close friends. She likes to set goals for herself, but often finds herself having to spend a lot of time considering others that have taken advantage of her kind heart.

I want to see what else you come up with. Your poems are sweet.

Its sad that people often take advantage of 'the kind of heart.'

I will post as they come to me :)
