The Price Of Giving Everything To Help

Life's phases change too fast..
It feels like nothing will last,
And I can never build a future
When I'm living in the past..
It used to feel like a scratch
From all the bullets I'd catch,
Helping others dodge the shot
Had only left me in a cast.

Would they do the same for me?
It's truly doubtful..
Lifting a whole family from a street Into a house full..
Showed them there's much better things to eat,
And taught some house rules:
"Always wash your hands, and please stop talking with your mouth full."

But those people didn't cherish,
Now it's much too late.
They just took my cash, I'd perish
With increasing rate.
I had gave them my whole life,
And that's the part that I mostly hate..
Once you give away your soul,
You don't control your fate.

I was kind, it was my weakness and they knew it well.
I believed in love, but they showed me it's just a type of spell..
Cuz my (soul mate) only used me like a tool for 'show and tell'..
When the 4th year came, she ditched me in a living hell.

How can someone that you helped so much have so much doubt?
I spent thousands, now I'm just a joke they laugh about..
They had hooked me on their line, to them I'm just another trout.
They just caught me for my misery, while she just watched me bleed out..

Would I help another person, knowing she did this?
Honestly, it's hard to say with all the memories I miss..
In an instant, I thought love began with that 'first kiss'.
But I think I got the lesson,
When class let them dismiss.

If I see another person that could use my hand,
I will ALWAYS help them up, as long as they will stand.
Even though it was a heartbreak and a loss I hadn't planned,
I'll help ANYONE that's lonely,
Because I fully understand.
