Can You Give Without Taking More?
Poem By Alison Smith
My mind has been pulled apart
I have been dragged too and fro
Talked to many who just want release
Does it matter how I feel?
They want something I can give
But I dont feel what they believe
I can spin a tale that excites them
Pretend I feel it too....
I can no longer play this game
I no longer seek to be used
If you just want to take then goodbye
I can no longer give to you
Its time for me to take time out
Time for my regrowth.
My strength has dwindled
Now I only seek new strength
Are you willing to give and not take
The journey will be worth you joining
Can you give without taking more?
