They come to you for their sake
They smile at you just to have something
They care about you because it helps them
When you don’t have
When they can no longer profit
When their aim isn’t the end goal
They fall back
They keep silent
They retrace steps
You sit there wondering
You walk with confusion
You sleep with unrested fears
People want something from you
And so they do things just to get it
It is not about you but their own goal
And you live and laugh oblivious
Thinking someone cares about you
Believing it was all meant for your good
When you discover the new reality
You are not mad. You are not angry.
You understand it was for their own good.
You realise that it was hurtful for them too
And you’ll let it go. You’ll ignore the pain inside.
Although you feel bad, you’ll wish them happiness.
But you’ll trust people and let them in less
Wonder why they never considered you and
Never know who will stay nor why they stay.
