Just Because…

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should
Just because it feels right doesn’t mean it’s right
Just because you can fight doesn’t mean you have to
Just because you feel something doesn’t mean it’s true
Just because you don’t say it doesn’t mean you don’t feel it
Just because something is ignored doesn’t mean it goes away
Just because you want answers doesn’t mean you will get them
Just because something fails doesn’t mean you can’t try it again
Just because someone didn’t react, doesn’t mean they didn’t notice

Just because you love someone doesn’t mean they will love you back
Just because something ends doesn’t mean it should never have been
Just because someone has something doesn’t mean you need to have it too
Just because you feel pain right now doesn’t mean you won’t feel joy ever again
