Reasons I am Sad


Unable to see people smile back because I can not give a smile.
nobody ever cheers me because I do not know to cheer anyone.
can not receive an appreciation because I do not like to give any.
often being rediculed by others because I always redicule them.
no one helps in my failures because I do not bother to extend one.
trouble always gets in me because I often cause troubles to others.
emptiness fills my heart because I do not intent to become happy.
none becomes my best friend because I do not stand by them at all.
the people are ungratefull to me because I do not learn to be gratefull.
everyone seems rude to me because I myself acts rude to anyone.
day after day I find nobody cares for me because I do not care either.
