My friends

There's this burden on me to always be the bigger person 

To lookout for others 

Be careful of their feelings 

 

It's weighty

This load on my shoulder

 

I kind of want to be selfish 

But what use is that? 

 

I don't expect much in return

 

So as always, when I get told 

xyz needs a friend

try and be there for them. 

 

here I am, white knight. 

Lending a hand, that I'll never get back 

B.B. John
