It Gets Hard Sometimes

It Gets Hard Sometimes

It gets hard sometimes
holding onto your peace of mind

It gets hard sometimes
when you just want to break
down and cry
seeing the love you gave
being thrown away

It gets hard sometimes
as life’s beauty seems to
die right before your eyes.
I said it gets hard sometimes
when you hear the lies

I said it gets hard sometimes
to hold onto your peace of mind
when you’re so lonely at night
with no one by your side

I said it gets hard sometimes
after you reach out
and touch
and never in return
receive a simple hug

I said it gets hard sometimes
to keep peace of mind
when all the joy seems no longer
a part of our life

Now is the time to bring out your inner peace
for all the world to feel and see
Now is the time to go deep inside and show the
power of an inner peace of mind
and shine your positive light

Now is the time to be the best of friends
to yourself in spite of those who don’t
reach out to touch your soul.

You must never drop so low as to not be able to
inspire someone else to rise

I say,
“It gets hard sometimes.”
