Paying the Price

By Audrey Lewis

 

I thought I did it for all the right reasons.

What were they ?

Certainly they did not matter.

For the kindness had a price,

it stole my soul.

The sacrifice was too big,

the return too small.

Even so they did not seem to mind,

they took what they felt they must.

I gave because I thought it was the right thing to do.

So now the thank you’s are fuck you’s and still I pay the price
