When I try

Some people like me

some people don’t

I love myself even if they won’t

Some people lie,

some people cry

and some do both.

Either way, it is about me.

I try so hard to ignore,

to pay no attention, but somehow

it makes tension.

And it hurts to know these cries

and lies have the power to destroy

so many lives.

It hurts to know that the ones who care

listen to the ones who dare.

Dare to destroy your life when they know

how hard you try.
