Fools Gold

Trying not to become emotionally castrated
Being numb and having zero fucks to give
But I've come to grow even more frustrated
Questioning if this is how I'm supposed to live

I give and give while feeling taken for granted
To some, what's best for me is an afterthought
Causing the sum to equate to being unappreciated
Continuing to seek the peace of which I've always sought

Bought the golden rule that makes me feel like a fool
Investing in the mind state that deeds will be reciprocated
Return on investment seems to be me used as a tool
Good deeds being punished, unrequited, or relegated

Dejected with thoughts of being disrespected too often
If I were hot-headed people would be less inclined
My laid back demeanor must make me seem softened
I value an uncaged life so my rage remains flatlined

The line between love and hate becoming thinner
Too much deception from the inception of love and war
Each encounter has me getting angrier and angrier
A consumer ready to return the gold back to the store
