It’s easy to be too busy
It’s not the right time
To worry that you’ll make it worse
So you accept their fumbled
It’s hard to find the moment
For hearing truth
But really we’re just finding excuses
To keep ourselves
To all the pain that gathers
When people can’t speak
And have to keep it bottled up
For fear of hurting
But what happens when you leave it?
When you let the silence
What if their pain is your pain too
But not asking means
So let’s all breathe together
Hold hands and take
Is The Time.
