I can’t help but wonder,
Is this really the right thing?
All the red flags are there,
Flapping in the wind.
I try to ignore them,
Pretend they’re not there.
But eventually I can’t help but see,
All the signs that say ” beware.”
I don’t want to be paranoid,
I don’t want to second guess.
But I can’t help but feel like something’s wrong,
Like there’s a big huge mess.
All the little things add up,
And I can’t help but worry.
Is this really what I want?
Should I be in such a hurry?
It’s not just my gut feeling,
There are things that I can point to.
All the arguments and the fight,
The constant feeling of “not good enough.”
I want to trust my heart,
I want to believe that things will work out.
But right now all I see are red flags,
And I’m not sure what to do about it.
I try to tell myself that it’s normal,
That every relationship has its issues.
But this just feels different,
Like there’s more to it than that.
I don’t want to give up,
I don’t want to walk away.
But I can’t help but wonder,
Is this really worth the fight?
When everything is said and done,
Will we be able to look back
And laugh at all the problems we had,
Or will we just be left with the scars?
I don’t want to be a quitter,
I don’t want to give up easily.
But sometimes I can’t help but feel,
Like this just isn’t meant to be.
