RESPECT

RESPECT

A Poem by Farmgirl

You say you if I  want respect from  you I got to earn it 
but no matter how hard I fight to deserve it 
you treat me like im not worthy of it
I fight for it all day long wasting my breath with words that go through one ear and out the other 
I spend most of my nights crying and praying under my covers 
I isolate so much that I feel unwelcome in my own home and nobody even notices 
So how am I supposed to earn respect when to you it is not acknowledged as an action and just a word  just spoken
just thrown at ya tediously for a humourous joking moment that to me isnt funny 
I feel like throat punching every single one of ya but the love in my heart that I hold for all of you doesnt allow me to even come close to making that choice remotely 
thank the lord that he holds my heart higher than an emotion or thought that I go through when they are flooding in and out of my every being wanting me to hurt you for how you treat me 

You make me feel like a Nothing and a nobody 


do you think that is fair to me by now havnt I shown you how you matter to me 

or am I just an invisible annoyance that everyone is tolerating

A very honest write......

It is unfortunate that those we aspire to impress and hold on a high pedestal do not always return the love and respect that we ourselves deserve. In such cases the best we can do is hold our heads high and never stop spreading the love. For at day's end it will be us that the starlight will shine on.

Courageously written work, Farmgirl. Keep the chin up. Always.
