I Exist For No Other Purpose - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am asked to give my support,
For this cause and that.
And for reasons I should not reject.

But I have needs myself...
Few have given attention to mention.
And even though I am blessed,
I do regret not being shown respect...
By those who suspect,
I exist for no other purpose but to give...
What it is I've got to be forgotten.
