Reason


If I could reason with you,

If we could talk it through

I’d drum it into you

That you are

A beautiful soul, worth your weight in gold

You are good enough, so give yourself some trust.

Maybe open up, to being loved

Time to hang up all the hang-ups of old.

If I could reason with you,

If we could talk it through

I’d keep on telling you

That you are

Pretty and witty and something unique

There’s nothing about you that needs to be tweaked

You are stronger than most even when weak

So open yourself up to the love that you seek

If I could reason with you,

If we could talk it through

I would reassure you

That you are

Comic and clever and generally kind

Still sharp as a razor but softer inside

Taking down barriers, learning to unwind

Have stopped giving myself such a hard time.

If you could reason with me

If only make me see

You’d finally be free

Because I am

Good enough, if not a little rough

Around the edges

I want to be loved if not a little roughly sometimes

No need to be so tough, stop bringing defences up

Open up to being loved

If I could reason with you

If we could talk it through

I’ve one more thing

To give to you

You deserve it wholly, but you must be receptive.

Your well-honed hard exterior can be counter productive

To have love you must first learn to give

Only then will you receive.
