I Tried

by Mimi   Sep 25, 2020

I tried to let people in
I tried to give them a chance
I'm done beating around the bush
I'm done with this awkward little dance
Yes, I'm broken
If you can't deal with that, leave
I've been through a lot
My mind I still grieve
I bet if you dealt with
The things I've been through
Then you'd understand
Why I'm done being used
I've put up with a lot
And tried to forgive
The people who've wronged me
So I can start to live
But they never do change
The just revert to their old ways
I don't know why
I can't see through this haze
People will be people
They hurt and they lie
I'm not even sure
They'd care if I die
So I'm finally done trying
Done wading through the muck
Because the truth is:
People really suck

      I agree, sometimes you just expect too much out of people.
