Not Enough
I bend over backwards to care for you, when you are ill.
I keep your house clean, and do everything for you
I make sure that you are fed, so you don't go hungry all day,
I feel like my efforts go unnoticed and wasted
I am so tired of trying to prove myself worthy of your attention
Just a simple "thank you" or "babe you're the best", will even do
But unfortunately, I don't even receive that
When will I ever be good enough for you?
You act like what I do, I am supposed to do, boy are you ever wrong.
My position is to take care of my children and myself, I don't have to care for you if I chose not to
You are taking my kindness for weakness, and at some point it will come to a halt.
I care for your child like he was my own, which you created with a woman I have a strong hatred for
I don't have to do that either, but you have an attitude "like I'm suppose to", wrong again
When he's up late crying for his mother, I am the one the nurtures him and rocks his precious soul to sleep
I am tired of being taking for granted, the day is coming when this will all end, but I can only take so much….
I am tired of walking egg shells around u, having to mask my true feelings, well truth is, I'm tired of not being appreciated enough, by someone that is supposed to be my true love, best friend, and soul mate
I am not feeling that true connection these days, I feel miles upon miles away from you…..
I'm OUT!!!!.............
