Not My Dream Anymore

Can’t please everyone!
Such a broken record, but true.
I’ve spent my whole life,
it seems putting everyone’s needs
before my own.

Outcome, people are only after
what they can get.
I know, I pay attention
to how people operate.

The same people I try to help
do not care one bit
about my well-being.
I know, their actions
speak louder than words.

I’ve decided to cut my losses.
That big house with all of
my family under one roof,
I have to forfeit.
It’s not my dream anymore.
