Kindness, to me
It's kind of like a flower
Only every time I'm given one
It's poisonous and thorny
They ***** me and fill me with betrayal
And turn to ash in my hands
How am I to know
That your kindness is genuine
That you don't want to hurt me
And even if you don't
I still know that every flower
Will die in the end
How can I trust you?

step by step
by step by step
my arms the rungs
i lift them up
to a better place
than they were before
and never asking for a hand
afraid that they would change their minds
and decide i wouldn't be good enough
for them to step all over me
as if it were a privilege
to be used
by them

Em
isn't it sad when you think you've hit the bottom.
that it could not possibly get any worse.
but it turns out there was no bottom.

Your sweet smile brings me back to a time when I actually thought you were made of sugar...

Why do people hear my mumbles... but never my full sentences?
Why am I never good enough for anyone or anything?
I try so hard... so hard that it hurts sometimes...
Well... most times actually.
All I ever do is try, nothing more nor less.
It's not like I'm capable of doing it anyways...
Well... I am capable... I just haven't gathered myself to commit to anything just yet.
Why is it so hard to be accepted in this world?
One day, I won't have to try anymore. I won't even have to worry about it...
Until then...  I just hope to forget what "love" should be...
And believe the reality of it.
