All these people chasing after me is beginning
to make me lose my mind.
It's becoming so exhausting.
Am I a magnet
for people with troubles?
Whenever they're in a fight,
he comes running.
Whenever she's annoyed,
she comes running.
Whenever they need advice,
they come running.
If I'm that good at listening,
why aren't I that good at talking?
All these feelings-
filter through me,
I feel everything
and every last emotion.
Maybe that's why I'm so afraid
to be vulnerable-
I feel what everyone else
has already felt for themselves,
except I feel it all at once.
Can one person's mind
handle ten or twenty?
I'm being overwhelmed.
Why do they come running to me-
even when they can't tell
their Best-Friend?
I'm a magnet.

there are times when I feel like this, over-whelmed and burdened. But then there are times when I love helping people and couldn't think of a better way to spend my time..
