I've learned to handle myself very well

I have my schedule and money balanced perfectly

I have me handled, I am very independent

**********************************************

It seems once I can handle myself

I have to take care of more than me

I have to be responsible for the you

**********************************************

You are irresponsible, unbalanced, and inconsiderate

You are late all the time and timed wrong

You are a slacker and plainly rude and shallow

**********************************************

That is you and expected of you

I don't have a problem with you

I am not telling you to not be you

**********************************************

Where is the fairness in you taking over me

I am me and very happy with me being me

I want to live my life without being dragged down

**********************************************

As I said before for this is MY LIFE

Why are you more than just in it?

My life is my life, not my life is mine and yours

**********************************************

As I said I don't have a problem with you

Why? Because you're not my problem

Why can you not handle your lazy self

**********************************************

Unfair is how it feels

Why is it I don't need anyone to carry my weight

Why is it no one is willing to carry my weight

**********************************************

Unfair is how it feels

Why is it I must carry my weight and yours

Why is it you must be so lazy

**********************************************

This is my life, not yours

So get out of it, I won't have the patience forever

I'm not going to mother you forever

**********************************************

You say you hate me mothering you

I'm not your mother so I shouldn't act it

I don't act it, it's you who pulls me into it

**********************************************

You're not the only one to pull on me from either side

You have said before you're sorry for what they did

But actions are more powerful than words, you know?

**********************************************

I have yelled for someone to be with me

I wanted someone to have us to embrace each other

Not like it is now, me holding you up, particularly you

**********************************************

Now I have to hold me and you up

You get to walk on happy as can be

And people think I can't handle myself

**********************************************

People think I am as unprepared and lazy as you

People think I am as irresponsible and unbalanced as you

People think I am you and apparently you think it too

**********************************************

People don't see the real you who is selfish and annoying

People don't see the me who is pulling all the weight

People don't see the real me who is wonderful and blame me

**********************************************

Realistically this isn't about other people, this is about me

This is about me, me and you intruding me as unwelcome

Friends can help friends, but do I get any please or thanks?

**********************************************

This is my life not yours, but now this is my life

I've turned myself into the victim and I look pathetic

I look like someone who can't stand up for themselves

**********************************************

But I can, because I am me

I am perfectly balanced

I am perfectly the me I want to be

**********************************************

Doesn't it bother you that you are so weak

So dependent on me to handle you, I can't wait

till your rude awakening, and the lifted burden

**********************************************

We in fact are opposite of each other, you take, I give

You are ugly on the inside and pretty to the outside eye

I am ugly to the outside eye and pretty on the inside

**********************************************

You think I'm and idiot

You think I don't see right through you

But I can, but even so you guilt me every time

**********************************************

I suppose I should stop victimizing myself now

I suppose I should stop giving away my own power

I suppose I can be me again, but how do you do that again?

**********************************************

This is about me, me and my life

My life is mine and yours so should I change the title

This is about yours and my life

**********************************************

I've learned to handle us very well

I have our schedule and money balanced perfectly

I have us handled, but you can't handle even that

**********************************************

Till the rude awakening

I smile at the thought

But wait, am I now ugly inside too?
