I Hate To Be A Nice Guy

ID-100149629

A nice guy, who is always agreeable
Not because he doesn’t have an opinion
But because he respects opinion of others
And they think he agrees with what they say,
Do whatever they do, follow what they follow,
But when he expresses his opinion, counters their opinions,
They think he’s being irrational, eccentric,
He’s being weird, strange; no one wants his different opinion
They all get mad at him, inside their mind, they are saying
Something is wrong with him; we didn’t expect it from him,
Well, he is a nice guy, why is he behaving so strange?
He is not allowed to be himself or take a stand,
Those eyes saying you are not anymore the guy you used to be
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who doesn’t say anything
When others are talking about someone,
Behind their backs, discussing their shortcomings,
He wants to stay away from negativity,
So he stays silent, and that silence is misinterpreted
As he thinks the same way we think about them
Someone sells everyone out and informs the guy,
What they were talking about him and his demeanor
With anger taking hold of his mind, he rushes to confront,
But finds someone easier to do blame, of course, that nice guy,
Spit out everything on him to empty his mind,
But the nice guy doesn’t say a word,
He understands this is not the right time to solve the misunderstanding
But he has to hear those hurtful words,
I didn’t expect it from you; you are a nice guy, not like those guys
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who always obeys his parents,
Do not misbehave, good in studies, no complaints from teachers,
Always following the system, not doing anything naughty,
Or something that his parents wouldn’t allow,
One day, he finds something he loves,
Something that he is so passionate about,
Something that takes his sleep away,
He wants to follow his dream, do what he loves to do,
But his parents do not allow it on terms of not being realistic,
Even after persistent requests, they are not ready to understand him
He is forced to do what they think is right,
Because he never did something against their wish,
This time will not be an exception,
Because he is always been a nice guy, and never rebelled,
And I hate to that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who admires that beautiful girl
Treats her with respect and generosity,
Listens to her small things, even though it doesn’t matter to him,
She shares everything with him; he helps her in every way possible,
Never try to show-off or pretends to be a flirt,
But in the process, falls in love with her spontaneity, her smartness,
When expresses his feelings to her,
All he gets is, I don’t look at you that way,
And an assurance from her that
Someday, he will get a very nice girl
Gets friendzoned or brozoned,
In a meantime, showing her boyfriend’s picture,
Asks how’s my handsome hunk? Isn’t he cute?
Yes, he is, is my diplomatic response
Until I notice his cool sports bike & Armani shoes,
He has to make those genuine feelings disappear,
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who knows what’s going on in
His friends’ mind, life & can spot a little change in behavior
Who listens to their feelings and stay calm when they are angry
They take out their frustration on him,
Speak their heart out, he listens intently,
Assists in solving their problems, clean their mess
But when he is angry and emotional, they ask him to keep quiet
Or make fun of his display of emotions,
He is not allowed to take his frustration, his anger out,
They take his feelings for granted, do not respect those,
No one is ready to give an ear to listen what he has to say
Not interested to understand what’s going on in his mind,
He’s taken for granted for always being sweet and smiling,
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who becomes lonely inside,
Wishes to become The Joker from The Dark Knight,
Plans to form a network of all other nice guys,
To wear an actual mask to unmask every truth,
To clear every misunderstanding in a hostile way,
By choosing the path of destruction,
The world doesn’t get them when they are being nice
Maybe the other way will do it,
Though he has a dark side, but can’t choose the path of destruction,
And the crazy fact, this time, it’s not people,
But him, who doesn’t expect ‘that’ from him,
And again, I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.
