rose tints my world. by gloeckchen

They say kindness begets kindness

And to treat others as you’d wish to be treated

While you follow these words to a fault

You still seem to find yourself on the losing end

With nothing but a strained smile

And empty promises

Left in the wake of those that would use you

You only see the best in everyone

And they only see you for what you can provide

Give and take, but only in the favor of others

Never do you raise your voice in anger

Only in genuine joy that you can help

Never is your sight spoiled by hot, red hate

Everything you see is merely a world

Tinted in rose and self-deception
