They Deserve to Be ToldMature

While going through some pretty intense struggles, I was struck by the fact that sometimes, the person who's dealing with the problem thinks they're the only one in pain. This is so not true. I have been both the one dealing with the issue and the one who silently struggles as my sisters cope with their problems.
If you, as a reader, are going through a trial in which your family is helping you...don't forget that you are not the only one in pain. 

They Deserve to Be Told

Verse One
You seem pretty down lately
So hard on yourself 
Your world is a canvas of pain
You seem pretty broken
And I want to help
 But you're not the only one in the rain

Chorus
If you have a friend or family who watches you press on
Who can barely keep the tears from falling down
Don't forget that you're not the only one hurting
Don't forget that you're not the only one needing to be found
I don't want to shrug aside your hurt
But I find that now is the time for me to be bold
Goodness knows how much your loved ones are hurting
And if you value them...they deserve to be told

Verse Two
You can cry on my shoulder
Look to me as support
But don't forget that they need love, too
I know it's hard to be where you are
That you can barely stand
But to think you're the only one hurting, well
It just isn't true

Chorus
If you have a friend or family who watches you press on
Who can barely keep the tears from falling down
Don't forget that you're not the only one hurting
Don't forget that you're not the only one needing to be found
I don't want to shrug aside your hurt
But I find that now is the time for me to be bold
Goodness knows how much your loved ones are hurting
And if you value them...they deserve to be told

Bridge
I know it's all you can do to keep your head above water
But please understand that they feel the same way
You're not the only one who wants to die right now
You're not the only one who waits for break of day

Chorus
If you have a friend or family who watches you press on
Who can barely keep the tears from falling down
Don't forget that you're not the only one hurting
Don't forget that you're not the only one needing to be found
I don't want to shrug aside your hurt
But I find that now is the time for me to be bold
Goodness knows how much your loved ones are hurting
And if you value them...they deserve to be told
 

The End
