More to Scrape Off My Shoe

More to Scrape Off My Shoe

Long lost is gratitude for helping another

Whether a piece of bread or a publishing break

We have fools with their hands out

But never their hands in helping another

Be they counterfeit cowboys

Or hopeless hippie homeboys

The pain is the same

That your efforts 

Merit no respect.

  1. I’m with you. Too many selfish pricks out there. I don’t know how you do much for these people and they could care if you live or die.

  2. This powerful and all too true. The ungrateful should be scraped off the shoe of the Worthy.

  3. Sad. Work without appreciation and effort without gratitude can drain the spirit. That came across quite well. Hope these feelings are ones that transform. That worth is seen.
