Nice is not nice

You try to be nice,
Try not to hurt anyone,
Eat up your anger,
Don't show it to anyone.

Can you spare the hurt,
Really save everyone around,
Or are you forgetting,
You are also someone.

When you control yourself,
When you do all to keep others peace,
If you are getting to pieces,
Are you really keeping peace.

Should you be nice to everyone,
Without a care in the world,
How you are treated,
By the people who form your world.

Is time to rethink your life,
Time to take control,
Time to rejuvenate the self,
And live a life that's whole.

It's been a while since I've dabbled in rhyme, and I am sure it shows. Needless to say, things aren't all hunky dory. My attitude of treating everyone well and not hurting anyone's feeling, even if not reciprocated, seems like a very bad idea. Not just that it fails to do what I intend, it also leaves me miserable. All the thoughts that I keep to myself, all the complaints that I do not bring out, they stay in and start eating me up. I guess I really need to start being more blunt and aggressive if we need to maintain my sanity. 

Trying to be nice, may not always be nice for you
