“Hate Me Not”

I’ve watched your eyes as they spilled their pain

They told a story that your lips contrived in vain

I’ve heard your nightmares in the middle of the night

I’ve comforted you and held you tight

But now I see that I didn’t know you at all

Or at least, that’s what you’ve told yourself

You’ve held my heart as it bled in your hands

…for you

And that’s why I understand

I knew the pain that you were in

Because I felt it, too

And I did see the real you

Because everyone has a story within

And I sympathized with yours

But the power of persuasion is not a win

And we were never at war

— David Allen
