If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?
-Plain White T’s
You don’t have to be anyone’s ‘giving tree.’
Or, you can be everyone’s ‘giving tree.’
The point is, the choice is yours to make.
Be you. For better or for worse.
Be you first. Be everyone else’s second.
