Own It

I set it up
You listen
You bring it up
I'll listen
Say it
Say what you need to say
Spit it out
Confront it
The fear
The love
The hate
It's different
It's weird
It's sad and sucks
React how you wish
Distract if you can
I set it up
You bring it up
I'll listen
I'll react
Tell me the truth
Be honest
Don't whisper it
Scream it
Louder then the music blaring on a Saturday night
And the sirens
But say it with love, with respect
Say it with confidence
No confidence no truth
No trust
Don't say it.
Then keep it to yourself
