From A Reference That Is Past Tense - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Doing to get anything done for anyone,
Some are born with that philosophy.
With a need to give of themselves to others,
As others choose to do to them...
As they wish and please.
I've witnessed those relationships.

But there is a limit for me to this process of giving.
If it is hinted my doing done is taken for granted,
For anything from my heart I do...I am gone! C-ya.
And someone is going to find themselves distanced,
As I look at their disappearance...
From a reference that is past tense.
