How do I know when I have made someone happy? Cause I sure can tell when I have not How can I bite my tongue when I have so much to say? Biting your tongue can cause unnecessary bleeding How should I spread myself thin enough to help everyone? Hopefully not under an old steamroller How will I get out of the rut I got stuck in? With the help of some good Samaritan maybe How do we know who we can and cannot trust? With intuition and measured acutance How can I be assured that I will survive? No-one person can be assured of this How am I able to ask all of these questions? With a lot of hard thought and expressiveness Will this make sense to anyone other than myself? Only those that read these lines will be able to answer Would you answer all questions asked of you honestly? The truth can hurt some people if they have trouble with emotions Do I answer all questions asked of me honestly? I answer each question in ways I think will not hurt the listener
