Break the Cycle

I have noticed in all relationships
We lash out at those closest to us
And have a tendency to to hurt them
When we ourselves feel vulnerable
Cornered or threatened

And it's a part of all relationships
Sometimes it's intentional
Sometimes it's just a defense mechanism
And most times it feels devastating

In your mind you wonder what you've done
You look to place blame somewhere
As a means of coming to terms with this cycle of pain

But the hardest thing to do is to take yourself out of the situation
And to see as to what caused the hurt to begin with
The hardest thing is to not react and just remain loving
Unless you practice an unconditional love for yourself and for others

I am trying to do that
With every experience
With every encounter
Give love
And not this pain that's being shared and held on to
