Give And Take~

Adam Grant: “Give and Take”

Give me your pain
Give me your shame
Give me your everyone that has every given your blame
Give me your life’s missed appointments
Give me your disappointments
Give me your blasphemy
Give me every dismissal by your family

Give me your broken soul
Give me your stories untold
Give me your lonely moments kept secret
Give me your feelings of being called desperate
Give me all your worries
Give me your broken time and needless hurry
Give me your bad memories
Give me your interment at the Cemetery

Take from me love
Take from me the heavens above
Take from me your lost glory
Take from me my strength never again to be weary
Take from me the blessings intended to be
Take the very essences of me

And when you have given of you
And Taken of me
We will truly be free
Free to love, free to stand above
The negativity, the hypocrisy,
The religious fanatic, the agnostic

The antagonistic, the plastic
The self righteous, the pretensions
Free us from conventionality, conformity
Dysfunctionality, endless responsibility

Free us from having to say Free at last
Forgiving the bitterness of the past
and life having slowed will no longer
rush by us so dam fast.
