There are as many religions in the world as there are people

I have loved things just to keep them alive,
I have held things knowing I would let go,
I hope to be happy but till then I survive,
I wish I knew the answer you want,
I wish I could lead you to a well that's not dry,
If I had my way through all the bitter pain,
My sworn love to you would never die,
Life never goes like we wish it to though,
I have broken promises I expected to keep,
I have found others while I remained lost,
I have stood there watching you weep,
I get so sick of being the one for others,
When I have yet to find the one for me,
Maybe I'll leave this rotten past behind,
Maybe I too deserve to be happy.

I hurt people trying to keep them happy, so I got to thinking, maybe I should just try and keep myself happy..
