Pleasing Me First...

By
Lately I'vs learned
To give up on everyone
Cause all they do is let me down
So, it's over; I'm done
I've tried to please you all
For so many years
But all you gave to me
Was sadness and tears
I'm not opening my heart,
For words, I know will hurt
And I'm not treating you like gold
When you treat me like putrid dirt
Why be unhappy
When you can turn it around?
Why try to yell
At something without sound?
So please don't hate me
I gave it my best shot
But I'm gonna live how I like
Whether you like it or not
Life is short; just smile and breathe
Trust me, it gets worse
I've given up on you
I'm gonna start pleasing me first...
