The Word That I Hate Most

The Word That I Hate Most

A Poem by Anshuman Aryav

There is a question in my mind,

Whose answer I can’t find,

That why my friends, my father and mother,

Compare me to others?

Why they tell me to see those?

Comparing is the word that I hate most.

There are some differences,

That makes me unique and beautiful,

But they compare me everywhere,

Whether it is home or my school.

Comparing is a battle that I can never win,

And if someone compares me this is like a sin.

I will feel very happy that day,

When someone compares me to the person from yesterday....

Your poem sounds like a genuine & heartfelt complaint about comparisons, which are always a bad thing. When I was young, I got straight A’s (perfect scores) on my school report cards. My parents always compared to my sisters & brothers, who didn’t do as well in school. It not only hurt them, but it made me an enemy to my sisters & brothers – they hated the “perfect” one they were always compared to. So, it’s bad for all of us, even if we’re not the ones falling short in the comparison! Even the ones coming out on top end up losing, when being compared! Your explanation is clear & easy to understand (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I indeed agree with you..And specially the last line"I will feel very happy that day , when someone compares me to the person from yesterday"...Very true..We should always try to be better than we were the day earlier...And you are right comparing is not right as every person has his or her own unique characters..As no two persons fingerprints can ever match no two people can be same and it will be wrong on the part of those who compare two people...I really liked the whole idea behind this piece of yours..
Coming to your writing style , i felt some things were lacking like in in the last line i felt that you should have used with yesterday instead of from yesterday..I felt that you could have stressed the whole idea that how comparing is bad and you could have distributed your poem in paras to clearly showcase your idea..Somewhere i felt that your words proved short to express your whole idea..I hope that you will pay attention to this points in your next writing and i hope that you will take everything in a positive way..
Eager to read more of your writings..
Keep on writing and thanks for sharing..

I am happy that you took my review in a positive way..
Truly satisfying poem on real could circumstances. The rustiness in your character's voice can be felt. That's the major highlight of your poem. Rhyming isn't necessary but do increase your vocabulary. Rest assured, an inspiring poem.

Absolutely I will.....
Thanks for this review...😄
Can totally relate. Be it school or college or anything for that matter some comparison always exists.Someone always seems to be way better. But trust me each and every one of us is uniquely talented. We are gifted in our own way. And like you said you should only compare yourself with the person you were yesterday. Only that would let you improve.Since you have understood this I don't think it will really impact you as much as before.

Totally agreed....... I also think if people wants me to compare with someone that do that with the previous me...
Tell me how I was or what I've become.....good or bad I'll take that with all due respect!!

Your wisdom is beyond yourself. So you need to compare yourself to only you. Do not agree to anyone until it agrees with your soul, no matter whoever they are.

That's the reality...almost everybody's parents compare them with the other children...even i hate that...apart from that poem is superb.
well done.
