Silver Linings

Look for the silver lining in everything you see, Not all things are as they seem to be. Abuse lurks behind poverty, frowns, money, and smiles. Nobody knows the hurt of another’s trials. When you think your whole world has fallen apart, You are not alone with your broken heart. There is the silver lining, look out and see your future If abuse teaches anything, it is about human nature No longer, be defined by hateful words of any woman or man Let abuse teach you strength, and that you won’t be over 'ran.' An abuser wants you to believe; you are nothing but a broken mess Instead, decide about your very own happiness It won’t be easy, but enough courage you will find To take a stand for your future, and leave the abuser behind If someone is assaulting your self-esteem If they think they are funny when they are mean Not another five minutes should you stay! It just doesn’t have to be that way Do not allow cruelty at your own expense, A silver lining of loving yourself is your greatest defense.
