The Real Thing That Matters

Hate me if you want to
Wish for my utter failure
Strike me with your torturous words
Hit me with your harsh disdain

You cannot change the heart of me
Nor will your thoughts affect who I am
You might hurt me and the scars
May remain in my heart a while.

I’m not here for your pleasure
I’m not here for your pain
I’m here because I have to be
For reasons I cannot recall, I want to be

I am human and fallible
But I am also soul
And if given a chance
You’d see nothing but love in me

I cannot hate
I will not wish ill
I won’t ever get even
I’ll walk away shaking my head

At the heart of me
I’ll feel the real pain inside you
And despite your words
I’ll still wish I could help

But I’ll step aside
As you throw each blow
That only serves
To expose your true weakness

Save your energy for yourself love
Save your energy for healing
And then you’ll find love
The real thing that matters
