Used and Abused I

I feel so worn out,

you all want

a piece of me,

and now I’m just

a dirty, tattered rag.

As much as

I’ve been battered.

am I supposed

to treat others well

when I haven’t been?

They say they want me

to be a nice person,

but why weren’t

you kind to me instead of

tearing me apart?

They see how broken

I am but rather than

making me feel better

they rip me a new ego,

one more fragile than before.

I will still love them

not because they

ever deserved it,

but because I do~

I deserve to be grudge-free.
