All It Takes

October 14, 2008
By Meaghan Flynn, St. Louis, MO

Opening your eyes
But not really seeing
Or hearing what they say
But not really listening

Reaching out
Do it now
Or pulling away
It's too late now

The choice is yours
While cries get louder and louder
Or you can just turn your back
Hiding in a hole

It could be different
By just giving some love
Or it could stay the same
And you could stay in that hole

Watching the days go by
It gets worse and worse
Or you could lend a smile or a hand
That's all it takes
