i try so hard

man i try so hard 
to do right by everybody 
i try so hard to do everything the 
right way so that no one would be 
upset 
i try to make peace wherever i go 
but people just don't seem to be 
satisfied with nothing i do 
i try so hard to be so nice to people 
but people just do me so wrong in 
return 
i'm tired of people taking my 
kindness for granted 
everytime i think i did something for 
someone to tell me good job 
or keep up the good work 
i get the opposite in return 
they either say 
you did ok but you can do better 
or you should have did this a little 
faster 
boy i tell you the truth 
people don't know how to be 
thankful for what they got 
they should be thankful enough to 
have someone to do things for them 
because its not too many people that 
will tolerate this
i try so hard not to get angry 
i try so hard to push that neativity 
away 
i try so hard to push all of those 
obstacles thats stopping me out of 
the way 
but it seem like the faster i push 
away 
the faster they come 
i'm tired of people trying to stop me 
from going further in life 
so i can better myself 
i'm tired of life 
life is too hard 
i do one good thing right 
people expect me to do 100 things 
right in one time 
i'm only one person 
i'm only human 
i can take but so much pain 
till one day i would just have to let 
them know how i feel 
boy i tell you 
I TRY SO HARD
