How should I feel

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

How should I feel
When I would start a war for you but you won't even make a ripple in a puddle for me
How should I feel
When Nations would fall for slating your name but no stone in the sea you would throw for me
How should I feel
When you deserve to be fought for, but no fight for me there seems to be
How should I feel
When I give you all, but it's not given back to me
How should I feel
When the sadness it takes me and I can't bare your name
How should I feel
When suddenly I realise you don't feel the same

    Unfortunately life is like that but I am sure that perseverance will prevail.

      Hi Goldfinch60, I'm sure it will. Thanks

      I love the repeated question in your piece. For right there and then its a huge question. A feeling of being abused, undervalued, dishonoured, taken for granted, used.... all of these and more but no single word suffices.

      • Jooles

        Absolutely, you put it so well

        Great poem!
        I like it because it is a feeling that at any given point for X reason we might all encounter. Hoping to learn from it & moving on to the next chapter.

          Thanks, yeah we all understand this feeling sadly

          well versed poem & you should feel very let down & quickly move on & find someone who at least meets you half way!
