Aren't you so kind?
Aren't you so nice?
For commenting on others
And giving your ‘honest' opinions,
You wouldn't think twice.
You forget yourself
And embark on someone else's journey.
You offer your help, your advice
Your being along with your dignity.
You live a life looking through
The eyes of your brother.
You're so passionate
That you're ready to rip out
The tiniest leaf that may
Make him better.
"I love you"
"I care about you"
You surely do!
For everything he, she, or I do
Seems to give a way for you
To always wreck through!
If there's not a way,
You illicitly create one.
You prick and pry
Often with a smile
And that really makes me think that
You are worth none of your time.
Your actions, your words,
Your thoughts, your nerves
Are all for someone else.
You're so busy minding other people
That you don't even know yourself!
Your nose doesn't always have to be sticking
In your neighbour's matter.
Your mouth doesn't always have to be gushing out
Your ‘truthful' thoughts like water.
Your hands don't always have to be running
Away from you.
Neither does your life have to be based on what
He, she nor I do.
Be selfish for once
Live your life for you
And not for someone else
Your cause of death
Will utterly be your
Lea- Beima Dorestin
