Self-hating and over-controlling

self hating and over-controlling
always right and all knowing
superficial and overly ignorant
the super user and the arrogant
she thinks the world revolves around her
everyone owes her something
from this god awful place
i fell into her trap,
and hell, i should have known
but at least i can walk away
and i'm not the one who's sitting alone
looking angrily at the phone
no one's gonna call her
they've all had enough
we can all only be pushed to a certain point
-then we break
self hating and over controlling
look in the mirror one of these days
trust me hon, it'll do you good
