Martyr

I look in the mirror and I ask myself,
What is it about me that isn’t enough?
What vibe do I give off,
That people seem to get from me,
Are ways in which they can take advantage?
Am I a martyr?
I open my heart up to someone new,
Feel feelings of hopefulness,
Yet all I seem to get is hurt.
You think by not saying anything it makes you easygoing,
But in fact all it really makes you is easier to walk all over,
You give yourself away too freely,
And maybe that’s the problem,
Where can you find the love you have for yourself?
Use the same energy you pour into others,
And take some in for yourself.
You deserves that.
You will not be a martyr to love.
