Listen

I made this poem into a song, as well. People have said itís sad, but I think itís empowering. And I think, with music, it will be a damn good song. I think of it as a kind of #metoo song.

When the dreams come
Even during the day
Then itís time to
Pack those memories away

Keep your back up
Like you canít fall
If itís you
Just go numb
Feel nothing at all

The pain , I know, is crippling
Itíll eat you up alive
Donít you allow it
Listen to me now
I know youíll survive

Donít show emotion
Donít even let them in
Never cry
Because thatís how they win

When the dreams come
In the dead of night
Just remind yourself
You put up one hell of a fight

Theyíll point fingers
Donít rub your wounds with their salt
Theyíll try to place blame
But listen to me now
This was not your fault

The pain , I know, is crippling
Itíll eat you up alive
Donít you allow it
Listen to me now
I know youíll survive

I stand with you
I grieve with you
But most of all, know
I believe you

The pain, I know, is crippling
But youíve already arrived
The tides of change are rippling
Youíve already survived

Listen to me now
Listen to me now
Listen
You donít have to despair
That your soul wonít repair
Because youíre
Youíre already there.
