    You are oh so supportive
    Always wanting to reach out
    And lend a helping hand
    You are the go to man in any
    And every situation
    Put in extra time at work
    Getting your business off the ground
    Being there for friends and acquaintances
    You are oh so supportive
    To every one but me
    I’m there to lend a helping hand
    I am the go to woman in any
    And every situation
    Put in extra time at work
    Getting my life together
    Trying to make my way to
    A better life for us
    Being there for friends and acquaintances
    I am oh so supportive
    To everyone INCLUDING you
    I get appreciation from any
    And every one but you
    Keep looking around for validation
    Outside of our home
    While I keep looking for validation
    Inside of our home
    After a while one of us is going to get
    Tired of looking
    I give to you and these children
    Until there is nothing left to give
    Ya’ll get the best part of me
    And I’m left with remnants of
    Promises unkept and nothingness
    But you don’t hear me
    I’m standing right before you
    But you don’t see me
    Because
    You are too busy being
    Everything to Everyone
    BUT ME!

    This has to be factual because it's much too passionate to be fiction
    I really enjoyed this!
