I breathe to please others 
Every move 

Every action 

Every word 


I overthink 

I write and write again 

Just to assure myself that everyone else will be happy 

Nothing will be perfect 

But maybe just good enough to make them proud 

Am I a bad person? 

Am I in the wrong? 

I don’t know what to do anymore 

I have been walking down my path blindly 

Charting every step in accordance with their views 

Why do I live to please? 

When others don’t even seem to care

Why is it that I can never go right

When others don’t even think of what is true 

I am done 

I live to please one.
