they say self-pity
is a waste of time -

fix the problem
or get over it,

its really as simple
as that.

so what happens when
the problem is unfixable?

what happens when
it hurts too much to get over?

it's a lose-lose situation;
what else should i do, feel, say?

i'm tired of hurting people,
tired of being hurt...

i'm tired of things i care about
being torn away from me...

i'm sick of everything that's wrong
with this twisted world...

i'm sick of being told self-pity's a waste of time,
when it's the only thing that keeps me sane.
