I know it's hard.

I know it's hard to respect others.

I know it's hard to respect yourself.

I know it's hard to tell when you're being rude.

And I know it's hard to tell when to stop.

I know it's hard to be a good friend.

I know it's hard to be slightly selfless.

I know it's hard.

But I also know that if you cared by now, you probably would do these things already.

I hate to say it's hopeless.

Yet, you haven't proved otherwise.

I know it's hard.

After all, you're only human.

But maybe it's time to stop making excuses.

Maybe it's time to grow up.

I'm sure you've heard this all before, and have ignored it.

That's your choice.

But please don't bring me down with you.

I don't plan to fail.

I just wish you would say the same.
