I gave you food when you were hungry

You gave me dishes to wash

I gave you water when you were thirsty

You gave me cups to clean

I gave you knowledge when questions were asked

You gave me ignorance at a glance

I gave you a place to call your own

You gave me holes in the walls

You gave me doors no longer left

I gave you work when few would

You gave me hollow words and broken tools

I gave you support, believing in the future

You gave me nothing to fall back on

With tear stained eyes you asked for love

I gave you…… nothing
