When life deals a blow

and we want to recoil

there is a distant glow

that helps us through.

The simple stretch out of a hand

to guide us along

let us know it’s alright

and we’re not really as alone as we think we are.


One simple touch

the brush of a cheek

to let someone know

we’re there, alongside them.

Not the physical sense that most would think

but the positive reinforcement of light and healing energy to pull us from dark places

let us know that the journey and turmoil we face

is not all that there is at the moments such blows are dealt.

there is an invisible protective barrier that no one can get through

this is the inner being you know is the true you.

Fighting so hard against the pain

knowing to reach out and find your balance again.

Some of know us how to read a cry out for help

and there we stand, arms out, giving positive words

to build you back up again.

Your pain is felt down to the inner core

but can remind you what your purpose is for.

Help you find ways to trudge past the wastelands

the hurtful words thrown at you despite your best defenses

for the odd one that breaks through and leaves the slightest bruise on your soul

we’ve got the first aid kit to help you regain control.

Oh sure, they will try to dig in their heels

scramble your brain like a pit full of eels

but remember one thing they can’t take from you

your purest soul’s energies

that make you the real you.

Many people may not see your pain

but small rays of sunshine help dry up your rain.

Lift you up, dust you off

let you know it’s alright to fall

but won’t allow you hide back in the corner of the wall.

We remind you that part of that wall has come down

so don’t build it up again

or wear that old frown.

A small hurt has pain but only for a short time.

Take a deep breath and remember one thing

they don’t own your soul

you don’t owe them the art of falling backwards

keep moving forwards

the way that you planned it.


We are your band-aid

your reminder of truth.

You’re surrounded by brightness

that lights your path

help is always there

just remember to ask.
