When they stare at you
Because you seem to be lost
When they don’t offer a hand
Because to them you are just nobody
When they are awfully greedy
Because they just want to use you
When they disrespect you
Because they really don’t care about you
When they just keep on being selfish
Because they don’t give a damn about anybody
When you ask yourself
Is life always like this?
Are people always this selfish?
Should I forget and forgive?
Or should I do tit for tat?
When you just keep on wondering
How overwhelming and tiring it is
To be hurt over and over again
By the people closest to you
How selfish sometimes they can be!
Why it is always ‘I’ for them?
How they forget that this world is better with ‘we’?
How do they expect to survive?
How do they want us to survive?
How can they forget that
What they love for themselves
Is what they should love for their brother too
This is when you should be there
For you, yourself and you
This is when you should love
You the most
This is when you should stand up
This is when you should not be another hater
This is when you should not see the flows in you
This is when you should not be a critic
This is when you should clap
This is when you should remember
That you are ten steps ahead of them
Because they will not use you
If you don’t have something they wish they had
This is when you should really look deeply into yourself
This is when you should really realize who you are
This is when you should really see your blessings!
This is when you should really know you!
