Doing The Right Thing.....

Poem by Malaya Bodlaver

Sometimes it means giving in
When you know that nothing else matter

Sometimes it means needing to be quiet
When words can no longer deliver the message

Sometimes it means going separate ways
When things have gotten unbearable and hopeless

Sometimes it means turning away
When your presence will do more harm than good

Sometimes it means giving up your dreams
When you no longer have time to dream

Sometimes it means stop hoping
When there's nothing else to hope for

Sometimes it means giving up your reasons
When you know that they just don't fit

Sometimes it means masking your true feelings
When you know that you have to put up a face

Sometimes it means keeping the love within your heart
When you know that it can only bring pain.
