You’re youthful, but not young.
You’re wise, but not old.
You’re in love, but not romantic.
You’re unloved, so continue to look elsewhere.

You’re hurting, but not crying.
You’re fighting, but not striking out.
You’re angry, but not hateful.
You’re abused, so continue to retaliate.

You’re complex, but not yet complicated.
You’re chainless, but not yet free.
You’re fearless, but not yet feared.
You’re strong, so continue to fight.

You’re still falling, but have not yet hit rock bottom.
You’re broken hearted, but not yet broken.

You’re alive, so continue to live.
