Tried Your Best - Poem by Shannon Martin

When you know you have tried your best
and nothing seems to come from it.
When no one sees to help you up when you are down

When no one says thank you when you do something nice
It don't make you feel good, yet it makes you feel low.

When that person knows that you have tried your best
to make something worthwhile of your life.
Even though you are struggling
You cannot fall,
It feels like everyone is on a pedastal
As YOU are watching below.
