They stay reaching,
arms stretched out with strained eyes begging.
They need you to help them up, they need a blessing.
While you’re helping them up, they slowly pull you down to the ground where they were just laying.
Hurt, ignored, humiliated, and waiting.
You become aware of the trickery a moment too late.
The same way you fell will be the same way you rise, only with your own hands pushing away from the pavement now wise .
Dusting yourself off, you see the shock in their eyes.
You have fallen before so you know your way up without fearful cries.
They are the ones who will fall once again the same way they got up.
Some hurt their selves helping others
Others hurt the ones that help them.
Deceitful with secret agendas and propaganda.
Know your worth and become more aware of
who deserves your time
who deserves your silence.
