STOP TRYING SO HARD


Stop trying so hard my son
You weren’t made to walk this path alone
Stop thinking you’re the only one
Who knows what it’s like, pick up the phone
Call a friend and let them know
What’s going on before you go
Stumbling over hurdles you didn’t see
Because you were trying so hard to be
All strong and self-sufficient

Stop carrying that load my son
You weren’t made to hold this weight alone
Stop thinking you’re the only one
Who knows what it’s like, pick up the phone
Call a friend and let them know
What’s going on before you go
Falling under the weight of it all
The weight of the world
You have on your shoulders

Stop fighting the world my son,
You weren’t made to throw those punches alone
Stop thinking you’re the only one,
Who’s been beaten down, pick up the phone
Call a friend and let them know
What’s going on before you go
Walking into that knockout punch
Because you acted on a hunch
That someone else was against you

  1. Really like this…I know someone who I would love to say these words to.

    • Thanks very much! I think we all know somebody we’d like to say these words to. I guess that’s why I wrote it, so that somebody somewhere would be able to identify with it or know somebody who they’d like to share those words with.
