"Because people remain ignorant of the fact that their life is infinitely precious and at one with the eternal universe, they live indifferent to the dignity of other people's lives."
-Daisaku Ikeda

You said it would be okay
But I know how worried you are

You said people prayed for me
But you just had to breathe

You said you’d be there for me
But you weren’t there for the important steps

You said you’d take care of me
But you need more talking care of
You said you asked people to visit
But no one came

You told me people cared
Then why didn’t they come?

You told me I’m perfect for who I am
But you tell me to do things your way

You teach me to be polite
But its’ your elbows that are on the table

You tell me to be nice
But you make so many harsh judgments

You teach me to clean up
But you leave your dishes in the sink

You told me you needed me
But you’re the most independent person I know

You told me you love me
And I believe you
