Had your lies wash me over
Like a sluggish wave in the rain
Beaten yet gave you direction. 
Till there was nothing left of me. 
Now I hear you say " You too selfish"
It's Just on retail, wholesale on you.

You're scared you didn't subdue me
Cause I didn't put the blames on you
It deprived you all rights to hurt me. 
And that really hurts you till now. .

You remember vividly last I bent before you
I had gathered the pride you tried to shatter 
Leaving resentment, jealousy and anger. 
Cause I'm no disposable can, much less 
To a loveless being as you

Still wondering why I emit pure bliss
Why I give love in exchange for nothing "You only give what you have" They say
Doesn't mean you accept everything thrown at you. 
Call it pride
Call me boastful 
But Self worth is the key word.
