    They Never get Pleased

    I laughed and they said "can't you be modest".
    I cried and they said "why don't you smile?"

    I smiled and they said "he's a show off".
    I frowned and they said "I started showing my true colors."

    I was silent and they said I had a feeble tongue.
    When I spoke they said I was too talkative.

    When I was tolerant they called it cowardice
    and said, had I been brave, I would have taken revenge.

    When I showed some courage they said it was rash & reckless, and I wouldn't have behaved if I were balanced.

    When I said NO they considered me odd.
    When I agreed with them, they called me a blind follower.

    So it became certain, that no matter how hard I try, pleasing people will bring nothing but criticism.
