I wanna feel like I matter
But its only making me madder
Makin me sadder
All its causing is depreciation
I’m losing control
Losing my sanity
So many identifying me as something
I don’t even want to be
Can’t even hold on to my own vanity
What I can’t hold within
I can barely hold without
All I want is to feel like I matter
Before we see my blood splatter

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on November 11, 2020:
I can sense the frustration building up inside your veins.
I think that's what we all want is to feel like "We Matter".
We want to feel like someone does appreciate our efforts & if they don't we are left to wonder why.
Then our minds play this cruel trick on us as our blood is boiling.
We think we know why...when it may not even be factual.
We need to let it go. Take a breath. Realize the only thing that matters is what we, ourselves think.
We have done our best. If someone does not appreciate us then it is his loss.
Walk away smiling peacefully.
