Be Missed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

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.~
