Different Colors

Showing respect and kindness to give,
Can sometimes stress.
And be too much to continue to digest,
For the one who is perceived...
In need of attention.
With wishes and expectations met,
To be taken for granted.
As if headaches to get is one's kept fetish.
Until that moment arrives,
And one realizes enough is enough.
With a doing to undo,
To show others they have different colors too.
With a proving not to confuse,
The colors they expose...
Are definitely not associated with rainbows.

'I couldn't believe it.
I stood there in shock.
I don't know what happened.
I did nothing wrong.
And suddenly out of the 'blue',
I was told where to go and what to do...
To myself.'

~And to think,
Of all the things you told others 'they' did...
For 'you',
Whenever you wanted them to.
AND for many years?
Who knew they would re-act like that,
Without reason or cause?
Like the last straw to carry,
Broke the camel's back.
I'm telling you,
People today are just ungrateful.
Aren't they? ~
