the love you take …..

“THE UNFORGIVEN

Tell me if you’ve ever had to deal with these kinds of people:

The kind who take and don’t give.
The kind to whom you give and give,
And they keep asking.
The kind to whom you give and give and they say you gave nothing.
The kind whom have never offered anything,
But act like they’re the ones providing
EVERYTHING.

The kind you give and give,
But take more than you can give.
And when they have already taken everything,
They get mad at you when you say you have
Nothing more to give.

The unforgiving,
The misgiving,
Wastefully living –
And selfishly driven.
The rat that never gives back,
Yet is so quick to attack –
Because they think the word
TAKING
Seriously means
GIVING.”
