Some people will break your heart outright
Others will slowly erode the edges;
Reopening a sore that never heals

Some people will cherish your gifts and unique spirit;
Acceptance will come without negotiation
Others will try to make you feel small

Some people will storm so to extinguish your light
Others will eclipse your light;
Struggling in a shadow that never yields

Some people will pull you from the wreckage;
Uplifting you even in your darkest hours
Others will leave you to burn

Some people will love themselves because of you;
Taking, taking with nothing to give
Others will love you in a way you’ve only dreamed

Run. Run from those people who in their presence you feel alone
Run. Run to those people who even when not near never leave you wanting
