If Not For Myself

I have to be better, for all the people who love me.

For the people trying their best for me.

For the people who want me to stay alive.

I have to stay, for them; if not for myself.

Myself, who doesn’t do anything.

Getting worse and worse at things.

Wanting to sleep forever.

If not for myself, then I’ll try living for other people.

May my love for them help me learn to love myself.
