I starve to not be greedy, on the brink of malnutrition to satisfy others, I'll sacrifice my last to give somebody their first. It seems as if I must die in order for them to thrive. I can't express how I feel for fear of being judged and sanctioned upon, maybe their lives will improve as mine matriculates and ultimately is done. Yet I don't mutter a word, nor do I care to be heard… for no sane sanitary sanctioned senseless soul will spare the time of day, to ask me I they can help me if they may… for I would love the blessing of a helping hand, but my dealt cards tell me that I must walk the road of a lonely man…

The author's comments:
It was just everyday life inspired me to write this. I'm hoping people will see that sometimes putting everybody else's feeling and lives before their own is not always the best thing to do.
