Thanks For the Reminder

Thanks for the reminder

That what I do is worth nothing

At least when it means nothing to you.

Though it means the world to me.

Thanks for the reminder

That I "waste" my time 

On something that does nothing for the minds.

Thanks for the reminder

Of how little I am worth,

Unless I learn to be what you want.

Thanks for the reminder

That I am nothing to the world

Except a waste of space,

A waste of time,

A waste of myself.

Thanks for the reminder...
