Throughout my life I have always tried to make other people happy,
But what about me?
Don’t my feelings mean anything?
Why do I have to be something?
You want me to be?
Try living in my shoes,
Pleasing everyone around you,
How would you feel if you weren’t happy inside?
You would want to run away and hide?
Am I right?
So before you tell me how to live my life,
Think for a minute,
Would you want what you desire to?
Or what others want you to do?
If you live for other,
You will never be happy,
