When you feel weighed down
With arms and legs made of lead,
Bent over backwards,
Spirits crushed like old soda cans,
But you still say things like
"I don't mind"
And,"It's no problem."
Your heart is so big
But it still has no room for "no"
You believe in helping others
Even when you can't help yourself.
You live to see others smile when you can't
And to know that you brightened someone's day.
And because like a shadow you're used to second place.
You know on rainy days no one will see you
Because feelings are something your're not entitled to,
And favors are a courtesy you don't have.
Because old buildings are knocked down after they've outlived their use.
