I could really identify with this poem, having experienced a lot of rejection in my life!

I like the repetition of the line "I can't help but fade away"--that sets the mood for the piece beautifully!

So heartfelt and heart breaking. I hope this volunteer doesn't give up, but finds the outlet God has planned for him/her.

Wow! How sad! A willing volunteer and no one wants to make use of her. I also hope this person finds a place to serve.

An honest piece and very sad witness for the church. The Church needs to seek each member's gifts and help them to work for the good of the whole Body! I agree with the above about the title ... very descriptive of the feeling and the condition of someone who has been overlooked and rejected. I really liked this article!

I can understand the feelings here, but i can also share that God will provide the perfect place to serve, for anyone who feels this way. He allowed me to go through many attempts at volunteering only to fail or be ignored or to be asked not to come back, but now, He has provided the right opportunities.

Good job, the writing is well done.

It is sad for any volunteer to give up and fade away! What a loss for humanity! God has gifted us all with talents and abilities! He also has a place in mind for us to use them to bless others and bring Him glory! Thanks for sharing your heart with this piece!
