Thankless Love A Poem

Ned Hubbard


Every single day I am with you…

Every… single... day... I am with you!

Overlooked

Disregarded

Do you realize what I even do for you?!

Every single day I work so hard so you can do your job

Never a mention of gratitude

I fight all day long just to keep it together

Tormented by the pressure that you put on me, day in and day out!

Every single day… I am in pain

I ache and I am exhausted

Yet I keep doing it, FOR YOU!

I don’t know how much more I can take…

The pressure is unbearable

It is not a threat and it is not because I don’t want to continue

You keep adding to the strain and pressure

And I am barely keeping it together as is

One of these days, I am going to pop

And everything will bust wiiiiiiiide open

Leaving you completely exposed!

I won’t always be there for you

But I love you, always and forever.

Sincerely,

The Button on your pants
