It is really painful when we do not get the love and appreciation that we deserve even after going out of our way to do good for others. Is being good so bad???

I Am Sorry For What I Am

Kill me all at once please,
I cannot die every moment.
I am sorry for all I did,
And today, I really repent.

Forgive me for my silence,
For I did not shout aloud.
When I did something good,
And did not get any applaud.

I beg you all for pardon,
As I have been so very silly.
To have put in my heart and soul,
To do everything for everybody.

I am sorry that I did not complain,
When I was in pain and sorrow,
So foolishly I believed that,
I’d be valued and loved tomorrow.

I have been hurt and chided,
Everytime I fought for my right.
So at last I learned to suppress,
My dreams, desires and delight.

Valued and cared for their joy,
For my joy, I searched in theirs.
I cried in solitude when it pained
Because for my tears, who cares?

I am no God, just a simple human,
With a heart and flesh like you all.
Then why can’t I be one among you?
Why am I worthless and small?
