There are days 

There’s been days I’ve given more than I should and days I’ve held onto way too much and forgot that maybe somebody else needed it too. Some days my heart is cold

And the warmth from my soul doesn’t quite reach it,

And the blood runs through every part of my body and my finger tips feel like the tops of glaciers 

Unforgiving

And everything I touch 

Is drowning in harsh words and harsher glances. 

There are days the sun feels like it lives in my smile 

And the light that follows me around 

Touches everyone around me 

But sometimes that’s not enough 

Being nice doesn’t always make you a good person

It just means you’re trying 

And trying is all we can ever really do.
