I Won't MAG

You put your heart
Into my hands
I don't remember asking for it
You entrusted your mind and
Your thoughts all to me I
Don't remember ever feeling curious
You need someone to believe in
You need someone to tell you the truth
Well, trust me when I say this
And only when I say this
That she
Isn't me
I don't want to carry the burden of
Your feelings
I don't want to carry your weight
On my shoulders
That's not fair
Just because you
Poured your heart out to me
Doesn't mean I have to care
Don't get it in your head that
I won't ever hurt you
Because the caution that'll take
Isn't there
Roaming the city streets
You fell in step
Fatally beside me
You asked my name
You wanted me to sound sane
You wanted me to be your boulder
You need someone to cling to
You need someone to tell you the truth
Well, trust me when I say this
And only when I say this,
That she
Isn't me
I don't want to carry the burden of
Your feelings
I don't want to carry your weight
On my shoulders
That's not fair
Just because you
Poured your heart out to me
Doesn't mean I have to care
Don't get it in your head that
I won't ever hurt you
Because the caution that'll take
Isn't there
I've never had a
Concrete home of my own
I've never had an
Everlasting love
And I don't want either one
I've never had to
Watch out for anyone but me
And that's the way I'd like things to stay
Just because
You walked in
Doesn't change a thing
Just because
You won't follow
Doesn't make me want to stay
I won't change my ways
For a child
I won't change my ways
For you
You need a mother
You need a hero
Being her is not what God
Dropped me here to do
You need someone to love you
You need someone to tell you the truth
Well, trust me when I say this
And only when I say this
That she
Isn't me
Tomorrow
I won't be here
You'll wake up
Feeling alone
Take this advice
Let someone else in
Someone close to home
I don't want to carry the burden of
Your feelings
I don't want to carry your weight
On my shoulders
That's not fair
Just because you
Poured your heart out to me
Doesn't mean I have to care
Don't get it in your head that
I won't ever hurt you
Because the caution that'll take
Isn't there
I
I am not here

Life is a stage, get on it and perform your best act.

honestly, when I first read this I was thinking "wow so heartless". But I read it over about 2 times and I can actually understand the speaker's point of view. of course, it is always nice to be there for someone in their time of need, but NO ONE is OBLIGATED to dedicate their whole existence to someone just because they are having issues. I don't know if I am taking it the wrong way, but GOOD JOB!

That was a very interesting piece. I couldn't stop reading it. It's one of those peices that makes you think about a subject in a new way. Good work! The bitterness in the peice is intruiging. Do you have a tune for it?

let it burn, suffering teaches the soul; let it grow, love nourishes the heart.

of course, I throughly enjoyed this article.  This one is something that I know very well, not only do I live my life in a very similar way, but I do not feel obliged to take care of anyone more than myself, unless I so choose to.  It is a personal choice, one that you, and you alone, have the power to make.  Phenomonal in its simplicity and truth.  We need more truth.
