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
