Evening Sonnet

I try, as do we all, I think, to add
My bit of beauty to the world I know-
A well turned phrase, a pleasure that I’ve had,
A fine-wrought image I can share to show
We all have something worth another’s time
To give regardless of our age or skill,
And working thus, we add a bit of shine
To each day’s light-we hope we always will.
But here’s a shock: those little nudging gestures
One feels at varied times push one away
Eventually gather force by self-investure,
Returning shove for push as if to say:
You’re needed here no longer-you can go now;
We do things differently, and you don’t know how.
