Can't You Just Try to Understand Me?



Why can't I ever been seen as right?
Why do people always make is seem like I don't make any sense?
I'm not crazy.
You just need to try to understand.

You never try.
You think it's easier just to sweep my feelings under the rug.
You like to paint me as the villain.

Why?
Why am I always the wrong one?

I try and try to help you understand me.
You don't want to because it's easier for you.

But what about me?
What about how I feel?
Why are my points always seen as invalid?

There's no way I'm always wrong.
I refuse to believe that.

You make me want to shut down.
You make me feel like I shouldn't even speak.
