Caring can hurt so much
As you look at everyone around you
Hoping they can get through the day
Without any problems.
You can say you dislike someone
Not wanting anything to do with them
Yet when you see tears on their face
Your face starts to mirrors them.
You see someone being by themselves
Yet you have nothing to say to them
Since you don't feel much connection
So you stay away
Hoping someone else would help them…
You hear people problems
Running around you
Which desperately makes you want to jump
And try to save them from themselves
Yet you know you only have so much energy
To spare for yourself
And true people you care for.
Sonetimes you wish you could be friends
Without feeling like you are draining yourself
From trying too hard to make it work
So you can help them
Since the pain will continue on.
You try so hard
To make sure no one is alone
To make sure someone has someone else
Since you know the pain of being lonely.
Caring can be a curse
That goes on and on
Despite trying so hard not to care
So you don't have to feel
Everyone all around you
That makes you want to scream out…
But hey at least it means you have a heart
Good one in fact
Just got to learn to focus on yourself
And on the things and people that matter
So you don't drain away from yourself.
