Make the decision

Let pain and hurt burn in your heart

Or set a spark

And light the love in you

It doesn’t burn

It glows

You can spend your time convincing yourself that it should be this way or that way

Justify your way

Sell it to yourself logically

You could never leave without saying goodbye

In fact, you could never just leave

You wouldn’t

You couldn’t

You wont

Doesn’t matter what happened

Everyone has a part to play

You are a man of love

And what makes you “you” is your ability to bite your ego and let the words of compassion sing

Mistakes will always be made

People will crash your trust

Split honesty with half truths

Quarter your heart

But you recover

Set a spark

And love deeper

It heals all cracks and splinters
