When i was little i wanted to please my parents
they were my world, when they smiled the sun shone
As i grew, there were others to attend to
keeping my sister happy, she might not want to play her "games"
couldn't keep my brother or his friends happy, best to hide
Still older, and the crowd to please grew
now it was my peers, again mostly for self preservation
the beatings were shorter if i did what was demanded
I got married
the need to please parents didn't leave
instead i just added another person to the list - my wife
my reasons for living - the joys of my existance
and more who need me to make the world right for them
and now there's my father's new live-in girlfriend to tend with
All i want to know -
when is it flippin my turn???????????????
