They call me a people pleaser
A sucker for others’ happiness
They call me that friend
Who is always present when in need
They call me a mother
Who always puts her people before herself
They call me a fighter
Who always fights for the justice of her people
They call me a lover
Who loves each and every person unconditionally.
They called me a bitch
Who tried to speak up for herself
They called me a slut
When I was just looking for love
They called me selfish
When I just wanted to accomplish my dream
They called me a whore
Who is only in love with herself
They called me names..
But they never called me by my name.
And when I'm broken
They call me weak; a crybaby
But they never care to know why..
And hey, remember to never let that break you, love.
For you are a people pleaser.
