Why Do I Have To Be Selfish?

Sometimes I wish
I said everything
That I thought

But that's not me

I don't ask for things
Or invitations
Or what I want

I just can't

I just wish others
Could think what I do
Cause I'm dying here

But I won't ask you to cheer me up

I feel selfish
Whenever I say things
That would benefit me

It feels wrong, so I don't say them

'Could you guys spent time with me?'
'Can you take me to see that movie I really want to see?'
'Could you actually be proud of my work?'

I won't say anything like that

If I did
I'd hate myself for it
So I wait to see if it actually happens

But of course I know it won't
