Boundaries — We All Need Them

They are essential in life, for the reduction of strife

To have boundaries in place

Creates a healthy space

They are essential in life

For the reduction of strife

Each and every one of us

Is NOT making a fuss

When we put our needs first

And step away from others thirst

You have the right to say no

This enables us to grow

You have the right to walk away

From people who prey!

You are allowed to stand your ground

From those who hound

You are allowed to be firm

Even if it makes them squirm

Putting boundaries in place

Can be done with grace

They may not like what they see

As they scream ME, ME, ME

But to protect your energetic space

Prevents tragedy and bad taste

When you keep you clean and bright

You step away from their fight
