So true, to be nice gives people the oppertunity to take advantage, take you for granted granted. i don't trust as easily as i use to, which ruins it for the descent people. great writing hun.

The poem is good but could be better with editing, should you like to continue work on it. Also, my advice is simply meant to be helpful, and only use it if you like.
Anyways, the first stanza is good, however the last line does not sound right grammatically, you could try changing it to "Because they're used to having me be nice" or "Because they're used to me being nice". It just interrupts the flow with it written as is, in my opinion.
I like the second stanza. The first line feels a little long, and may flow better with the other lines if it were shortened. That's the only real advice I have for that stanza.
The third stanza I'd like to see you remove any unnecessary words such as "so" in the fourth line or the "but" beginning the third line. It's not necessary to remove them, however again, I think the poem itself would flow better.
Just a few small changes I think could be made, should you like to do so. Either way, good work.
