I work so hard

It goes unnoticed

I don’t know why

Some people get credit

It is not jealousy

It is not envy

It is frustration

It is disappointment

It is uncertainty

It is exhaustion

I wonder if my work matters

It is something I have to let go of

I feel like a muddy brown color

But want to be teal, really pretty teal

I want to feel light and full of life

I want to promise myself the positive
