Everybody's Fool

I am visible to the world but I am unseen
I am living but I appear dead
I am always smiling but I am sad within
I hold my head high but I am in pain

I am useful to have around but I am never thanked
I make sincere efforts but the results seem insignificant
I am decent to a fault, but my actions are deemed vulgar
I am sensitive but my emotions are trod on

I walk the extra mile to see just a smile
But my intentions are always proven wrong
My heart breaks often and tears flow down
But they just get washed down by the rain

I don't learn my lesson and I still don’t know my place
In the lives of people around and the ones I love
I continue to lay around waiting for a nod of appreciation
But I am doomed to a life of ignominy

    a touching write Manoj... i guess I can connect with this feeling... believe me waiting around for even a nod from others do not help, for people are too stingy to admit most of the time.. believe in yourself ... for what you think of yourself is more important than what others do...
