    Somebody hand me a rag big enough to wash the tears away
    From so many weeping eyes
    Somebody please tell me how to stop the blood
    From gushing from bleeding hearts
    Torn inside & I can't seem to help them
    I can't help myself
    Sometimes I think for all my good intentions
    It don't mean ****, because ultimately I fail
    & I betray & I hurt
    So somebody catch me quick before I make another false step
    Shatter another confidence
    Raise the knife & jab it in between someone else's shoulder blades
    The very thing I hate about others, is sometimes what I become
    & Like R. Kelly sings
    "I don't mean it!"
    Sometimes I wonder why I even try
    Would it be better if I was no friend at all?
    If I never loved?
    Never tried to be more than a stranger to others?
    No can love me without hurting
    No one can trust me
    No one can know me
    Even I can't stand the me that hides inside
    Stands behind the super conscious sister
    But still tells lies
    Lord knows I never meant any harm
    But it always seems to end this way
    So I raise my hands up in futility & frustration
    What the hell do I do?
    Should I retreat into a corner of my soul?
    Never let anyone come into my world?
    I can't keep crucifying & condemning myself
    So I lay the worries of my heart in God's hands
    & resolve to change
    But somehow I know
    It might just happen again.....

    I can relate to this....but you have to keep in mind that there are two sides to every story...you are only seeing what you do wrong, time to look at all the things you do that are right (good)..we can't be everything to everybody all the time...we burn out when we try...
