People Disappoint Me

People disappoint me,
But who’s to blame them?
When it is I who expects,
Something from them.

For years now,
I have tried to please,
To understand and to love,
For people to appreciate and,
Care for me.

But that’s not how,
It’s meant to be,
I realize later,
Of all the treachery.

People disappoint me,
But now I know the truth,
That I needn't change for them.
How naive I was then,
But now, I live for myself.

    We take a lifetime to understand this very fact, don't we? What an irony.
