Empathetic
are you sure?
i simply care
for people who
don’t care
about me
or others
or themselves
and that’s okay,
because even if
the world crashes down
on them
i’ll still care --
i’ll still be there
because people need caring people.
there’s nothing pathetic
about being
empathetic

 

Selfless
no, not really
maybe i'm just this way
because i used to be different
so, so different
i wasn’t there for people
who needed me
but i was stupid
and ignorant
and now i'm sorry
and
apparently
i’m
selfless

 

Guilty
it broke me when i
found out
what had happened
to you.
i was there,
but not really
I barely knew you then
but you still don’t know me
and i'm so, so sorry
here i am,
a few years later,
a few years wiser,
and yet i’m
still feeling
guilty

 

Brave
i promise that i’m not
sure, i try new things
but it never works out
i love people
who don’t love me back
and in a way,
i guess that’s
just a little bit
brave

 

Fragile
that’s what he called me
he’s not wrong,
but now i want to
prove him wrong
even if it means
changing who i am
just so i'm less
Fragile

 

Who am I?
i honestly don’t know,
i try to be
kind
and funny
and helpful,
but i fall short
i wasn’t there for
him or her
because i was ignorant
and selfish
and stupid,
and no matter
how sorry i am,
it still won’t change the past,
and these mistakes have all become
part of
who i am.
