I made a sacrifice years ago

A sacrifice of a different kind

I sacrificed my weakness

So I could build a stronger mind

My weakness was being too quiet

And trying to please everyone else

Now I'm speaking up and telling people

That I need to help myself

 

I am still glad to sacrifice my time

To help someone every now and then

But sometimes I need to concentrate on myself

Sometimes I also need a friend

You can't please everyone

And I'm no longer going to try

I tried to be perfect once

And I almost died

 

With everyone around you

You'll never be alone (right?)

(Wrong!) None of it was real

And I was left crying every night

They were not my friends

They never knew the real me

I was always very good at

Showing what I wanted them to see
