What About Me?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Have I not been able to give,
In the way that I should?
Could I have shown more thoughtfulness,
With a doing for others who understood.

And...
What about me?
Have I spent too much time,
Only wishing myself to please?
What about me?

When was the last time I gave a helping hand.
Or with anyone just to listen...
Without making my own demands.
And...
Living with just one priority to see,
Someone other than myself...
I did something unexpectedly that surprised,
With a doing that made them happy.

What about me?
Oh...
Would I feel better inside.
If I made somebody happy.
Oh...
And that shouldn't be about my pride.
What about me?
Oh...
Would I feel better inside.
If I made somebody happy.
Oh...
And that shouldn't be about my pride.
What about me?

What about me?
Have I not been able to give,
In the way that I should?
Could I have shown more thoughtfulness,
With a doing for others who understood.

What about me?
Oh...
Would I feel better inside.
If I made somebody happy.
Oh...
And that shouldn't be about my pride.
What about me?
