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 spend 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
