Sometimes we fear we have no room in our hearts,
We have been hurt and the wounds are deep,
We think our cold shoulder represents our cold hearts,
For how can we trust when there is no one to trust?
And then we look deeper.
We are extremely caring individuals with good hearts,
Our passions and dreams are bigger than those of others,
We protect because we know how powerful our love is,
Eventually, we will break the chains of mistrust,
Develop the deep relationships we deserve,
Influencing and inspiring those around us,
And the world will finally see who we are,
And what we are capable of.
