They always say
“If you ever need anyone, I’m here !”
“I care about you.”
But what they really mean is
“I’m just saying that to look good”
“I don’t care about you”
It’s the harsh truth.
Nobody really cares about you
No one is going to take care of you.
They will come and go…
But you will still be there.
You simply can’t leave yourself.
You are your bestest friend
And you are your worst enemy.
You can only depend on yourself
The others just want you for them,
They want to own you
So that you can make them feel better about themselves.
They like it when you’re lower than them.
But do you like feeling so held back ?
I think not…
Close your eyes.
Don’t look at them
Look at yourself
It is the best way to unleash your true self
