That Has Yet To Happen - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Do me a favor.

'Sure.
I'm here for you.'

Don't do me anymore favors.
That's the favor I am requesting.
Everytime you have been here for me,
Why is it I have to remind you...
Of a favor you promised to do,
That has yet to happen?

'So what are you saying?
The excuses I used,
Were not good enough for you?
And I went out of my way,
To choose the best ones I could?

Well...
You don't have to worry about me,
Ever doing you a favor again.
People like you are not worth my time.
And are so ungrateful.'

I know.
It's difficult for me,
To not think of myself all the time.

'I'm glad you can see how selfish you can be.'

I'm reminded.

'Good.
It's not all about you,
You know.
I have a life to live too.'

I'm reminded.
