Going Spare – Written Monday 28th June 2021 (Aged 46)

Going Spare

why give pieces of yourself
to those who do not care
it is not like –
any of is have pieces of us
just lying around,
or going spare
we spend our days
fighting off the rain
and trying to fashion and forge
something out of long held pain
why give pieces of yourself
to people,
who would not and do not value you
and we would –
all like to keep the peace
but does that mean you –
sell yourself short
or become cheap
i would not start arguments
or fights in empty rooms
and it is not so wonderful
to push people to the edge
but my value like your value
is equal to everyone’s else
perhaps when it comes to you,
much more
why care about those who do not care
it is not like we have pieces of ourselves
lying around, or going spare
