When Nobody Cares

28 Oct

When Nobody Cares

I know well how it feels
You hope your work appeals
But no one pays attention
To your soulful invention

It came straight from the heart
A writing, song or art
But it falls on deaf ears
And quickly disappears

It seems that no one cares
Nobody stops and stares
No one has the time
To notice your sublime

And if it leaves you sore
How many do ignore
If nobody cares
About all your affairs

Just keep in mind one thing
As you paint or write or sing
There’s one who’ll always care
One who’s always there

One with gratitude
Who cannot be subdued
One who seeks your work
And it gives them a smirk

It’s you and you alone
Don’t ever cry and moan
That no one’s following
Please end your wallowing

And realize the one
That will not ever shun
Who knows just what you meant
Gives you accomplishment

Is none other than you
So next time you feel blue
That no one gives a crap
Just give yourself a slap

And know the only soul
That you achieved this goal
In honor of was yours
‘Cause it never ignores

It’s the one that matters
Appreciates and flatters
Makes you feel fulfilled
And sees that you are skilled

Appreciate yourself
Don’t look for fame or wealth
Because all of that pales
To what self-respect entails

    Brilliant. 🙂

    Too much to learn, too much to appreciate. Loved it.

      There’s never too much to learn. Everything is possible with enough time & pressure. That’s how diamonds are formed! 🙂
      Peace & strength,

        Oh, I think I didn’t use appropriate words here. I just said that in relation to your poem. There are many things, (too) many things to appreciate. I will try to incorporate them in my life’s ways. Thank you so much for sharing. And yes, patience is a great virtue. 🙂

    I love that this poem reflects art is meaningful even when there is no audience. There is writing for the sake of publication and there is writing for the sake of expressing one’s inner muse. I’m not an artist, but I’d assume the same could be said for any medium of art.

    A great lesson to all. I might have to let my kids in on this.
