How can you make someone see reason?
When they obviously don't want to.
Make them see the hurt they've experienced at the hands of another,
When they have seemingly forgotten it,
As if it didn't happen?
How can you make someone open their eyes,
And not just look, but really see,
That they had so much,
Before they took two steps backwards?
How can you make someone think,
Like a mother,
For their child,
Instead of like a child,
Do I just stand back,
And let them see their own mistake when it hits them like a train,
And it will,
Or do I stand up and say,
What I've said,
Time & time again,
Only to be ignored?
I know it's better to let someone learn,
From their mistakes,
On their own,
But when this person has hurt someone,
How can I stand back & let it happen,
When there's another person to consider now?
