Pushed Away

How do you help the ones who want no help?

How do you help the ones who will not listen?

Do you let them get hurt again?


Do you help them even after they push you away?

They seek friends who mean nothing to them,

while pushing away the ones who do.


They stir the drama pot when things are boring.

They go out with guys that treat them poorly.

How do you help them when you were the one pushed away?


Do you forget them and move one?

Do you pray from the sideline?


Or do you cry,

for you are the one who is not wanted?


You are the one that was pushed away!
