When giving is not appreciated
I used to be full of love
My open heart giving so much
I could comfort and heal
With just a single touch

Time after time they would take
As I eagerly gave my all
But having a generous heart
Would prove to be my downfall

How could I know
That selfish souls exist
No matter how much I cared
My eyes would soon turn to mist

For pain would be my reward
For doing a good deed
What I offered up so freely
Was taken in with such greed

There is nothing left inside me
My intentions have been shattered
It didn't pay for me to care
Nothing I did really mattered
