Treasure Island

Be Missed


Those who say to convince when said,
No time for themselves do they have?
And it is observed they do their best,
Just for others with a getting of little rest.

How unfortunate is it,
To have a life lived doing for others...
Without a 'thanks' expressed,
Heard from them to give and made.

A known appreciation stated to make,
Saves one from frustration on a daily basis.
Especially for those with no time for themselves,
To realize they can take it and the doing is okay!

'I feel so selfish when I take time for myself.'

~I 'use' to feel that same way.~

'What did you do? '

~Decided one day not to feel that way again.
When I noticed others taking my time,
To make me their fool and at my expense.~

'That's being selfish.'

~I encourage you to do the same thing.
Be missed.
Others may not like it,
But...
You will recognize immediately,
The benefits you'll get from it.~

'Be missed?
I like that already.'

~Be careful as well.
Too much of it can be addicting.
Although I will admit I am an addict.~
