If I harbor you, you take me over

My energy moves to you so quickly

That I forget to leave some for myself

If I'm not careful

I will look in the mirror

And only see you

You are a natural emotion

I welcome you but you are only a guest

In this house


My body needs room

My spirit needs room

My soul needs room


It is easy to use you

As a shield

I've seen that trick before

You keep people away


I choose to let you visit

Knock on my door when you need to

But know that happiness will soon

Ask you to leave

I don't ignore you but

I refuse to let you drive me
