Tough love 

It’s time to let go You’re not children anymore 

I can’t save the day 

Or force you to pray 

I can’t make you see the sun 

Through the rain 

I can’t change the game

I have to let you feel the pain 

Of your everyday 

I wanted to shelter you from the world 

And their vicious ways

Or the way society 

plays that  good old money game

But I can’t 

allow you to remain

 the same 

A prisoner of my nurturing ways 

I need to let you go 

So you can finally see 

Things aren’t as easy as it seems 

Disappointments will arise 

Victory will follow 

Being grateful and have faith in god 

 is the key to everything 

Soon you will see it’s doesn’t have to be a drink , relationships , weed or shopping sprees 

It will be just being happy 

To see 

being happy to breathe

 being happy in peace .

It took a minute for me to heal 

from what the world did to me 

So I can’t rush your process 

I have to let  go 

I may not be not holding your hand 

Any more 

But  in my heart  I will never let you  go …
