Why does the world pretend to care

when no one bothers to get to know me?

If you knew me you could see

the pain I'm in all the time

those of you who think you know me

don't bother to look close enough

to see my pain

you don't care

I help you all with your problems

but even when I ask

you don't help me

why should I bother when you don't try

friends are supposed to help

each other

but that seems to be

a one way street

I give up

if you need me

go away

I'll help myself instead of you
