A Little Love

Just a little love brings people a long way.

When you lose what you thought was the world 

Your eyes are opened up to a galaxy 

A faraway place you never realized

And so many people there by your side

You realize how many people you ignored because you just didn’t like who they were

But little did you know they just needed a little love and support and maybe they’s be just fine for you to support

We’re so wrapped up in surrounding ourselves with the perfect people 

But we come to realize they don’t exist 

And maybe if we didn’t ignore 

Didn’t hold grudges to the bone              

We could spread love around the world and people wouldn’t feel so alone 

I never knew the real feeling of feeling alone until I did 

Until my world crumbled but really reshaped

Until my faith in a power-up above became stronger through struggle

Until I realized I was in a bubble

Until I finally told myself no more being sad it’s a waste of time 

It’ll come true if I say it- really I’m fine

Those people we say aren’t for me- don’t have the right personality 

Maybe if we just heard them out 

Let them have their own little speech

Their own cry to the heavens when they start to fall

Their own plead for themselves

They aren’t so bad after all

Because they hurt too and that’s a gd given right 

See I believe everyone is inherently good 

What’s bad is when we don’t give people a chance 

And they stay the person that could 

I didn’t give people a chance until I lost all my chances 

Then suddenly the world seemed new 

Shiny and bright and open to possibilities 

But it’s scary and blue

Going out of comfort and being forced to talk to people you didn’t before 

Because to you they just seemed like a bore

But little did you know they were hurting too

And you didn’t give them a chance

You were so wrapped up in who they were to you 

She said this and he thought that 

And we said we wouldn’t 

Oh she got fat

And did you see what they posted 

It makes me so mad 

I’ll post something too it has to be bad 

Like a rising sea of nonsense that’s about to drown me 

I forget how to swim I sink deeper you see  

And I’ve come to realize its ok to be alone yet give everyone a chance 

Because they’re not who they seem to be at a glace 

They make comments for what you believe in 

But they believe in the same 

If only the world wasn’t so corrupt- it’s really a shame 

And you see the younger versions of you 

Makes the mistakes you told yourself not to 

And it’s not like I know how to spread love 

And trust me I’m not nearly as close to a dove 

I’m neurotic, I’m crazy, and I’m always lazy 

But I still believe everyone deserves some love 

Even though love is hard to take in 

If only we all got a little love

And didn’t get caught up in our selfish needs

I need to become this and I can’t say this, definitely can’t wear that, or listen to her, or speak out for what I believe in 

Because that would make me a different person than what they want

And we’re so wrapped up in choosing who we like as people

But really there’s no one to fully love 

There’s no perfect person and if there was that would be boring

And I’ve come to realize boring has no place on this earth

From the second of everyone’s birth 

That’s why we’re all so different 

Our blood, DNA, even if we’re belligerent

The angry the sad the seemingly bad

Well at least we’re not boring 

That would make me sad

Everyone’s struggles, successes, greatest pleasures 

They’re not even close to boring 

They’re a movie that plays in our heads every day 

And one day you’re just gonna have to say

I’m gonna keep being me and never change myself for anyone 

Never let my struggles say that I’m done 

And you better say these things too 

This world has people here for you

Because everyone deserves some love 

Some glory from high up above
