the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 30
living for another

living for another

the path that we have chosen
is not the one i should take
but to turn away in difference
a new life i need to make

to run the race for myself
is a challenge and a pain
everlasting suffering
with nothing left to gain

but to pace the track with someone
who wishes you to be there
would make the race a breeze
and free me from my care

to hold my broken hand
doesnt make it heal
but with it hold someone else's
and let that person feel

to live for myself
would never have been selfish
for in this selfish world
this is everyone's wish

but to like a selfless life
is something hard to do
but once i start to love
i begin to live for you



life is meaningless and selfish, unless you live for someone else
