For the Underappreciated

For the Underappreciated

A Poem by Eric Darsie

A poem for those who feel under-appreciated at work. Wrote this one because I often feel this way.


For the Underappreciated


Sometimes life ain’t what it ought to be

Things bend unfairly for others benefit

You bust yours to have a decent livin’

While they have it easier than they should

Favorites tend to screw you up

No matter how things really are

That’s the way the cards are dealt

Always some trick behind your back

This one’s for the underappreciated

The one who gets held down unfairly

Thanks for your hard work

And keep doing what you do

If it wasn’t for all of us

The foundation would crumble to the core underneath

We’re the people who keep this machine a going

No matter what the man sees or knows

Our pain fuels us forward

The hard work becomes our paycheck

Through the sweat and sore bodies

Weekends become sweeter still
