Bitter Pill You Gave Me

I’m here to pursue my dream,
And I’m shouting it to you.
I ain’t here to nag you clean,
‘Til you pick up your pieces, too.

You will never hold me back,
I will not choose to stay here.
You may give me comfort and lies,
But you will never give me fear.

Because I yearn to be of help,
To people other than me,
To the children who might shape,
The future we long to see.

Because the love I gave you,
Fell to an ungiving heart.
Although it is sad to part,
I must save my heart from you.

My heart wants to give and teach,
And nurture those I can reach,
While you refuse to let me care,
For your unforgiving heart.
