Nice Guy

You open the door for others

Listen to their problems

Give to charity

You think you are a nice guy


But your not


Your actions tainted by their ill intent

You curse the girl who merely said thank you for opening the door

Why didn’t she finally recognise you?


You give to the needy…

but only to take a picture to demonstrate your saintliness to future employers


The world seems to take you for granted even though yo are a nice guy

You ball up your fists and declare only “bad guys” ever win


But you were never a nice guy


Kindness comes from the purity of the heart

If you expect favours in return

You are not a nice guy but a salesman

Hoping to exchange a smile for your desires


Not all nice guys are you

But you are not a nice guy
