Should I care how you feel?
Should I sacrifice my happiness for yours?
Should I live only to bring you joy?

Is that what you think I deserve –
A life of neglect
Of being put down
Of being a possession-
And not even a well-loved one at that?

Well let me be selfish then
I will pursue my happiness
And not stop to ask about your feelings
For clearly you do not care about mine
