Character Attacked

Kindness to give.
Concern to be shown.
Respect to not neglect it.
And made aware of it known.
Are often exploited.
Condoned to go on.
Too often exploited.
Until this is gone.
With feelings that once where there.
Now nowhere.
From someone giving their time to care.

People can ruin.
What they have to let rot.
People can ruin.
What they get but should not,
Take for granted like an ice cream cone.

Someone who does,
For others to do.
And just to be themselves.
With nothing to prove.
But seem to be that one,
Shown an attitude.
Laughed at and character attacked.
Abused to amuse if deserving of that.

Exploited.
As if deserving of that.
Exploited.
Laughed at.
And character attacked.
Exploited!
