At what point
Do you give up
When is it acceptable
To admit that people suck

How many times
Do you have to be pushed away
And rejected to know
That people aren't going to stay

When is it okay
To build your walls so high
That someone can't get in
Unless you were to die

I found that moment
After years of rejection
I just want
To escape all detection

I'm done being nice
To the people who've wronged me
If I push everyone away
Then I don't have to be

I'm done trying
To make people stay
I'm going to disappear
And push everyone away

I wish it didn't have to
Come this far
But no one has given me
A reason to lower the bar
