SELFISH

SELFISH

A Poem by Sneh


I live for me
Who the world is
Including thee!

When I laughed, you cheered
When I cried, you disappeared
I realized, how tough angle
It is the midnight
Me, struggling entangle!

I am who ,often so
Disregard your ignorance
I pray to god
To get me everyday
A fresh and happy face!

You are just a seed
I'm already grown
I'll stay green until
My heaven says,
Come on!!

Your plight is s**t for me
Mine is a case
I cleansed my body
And the sorrow is less.

I'm preparing a dish
With some sweet gestures
And some spicy mess
I owe no one to garnish
My success will speak louder
And rest of mine is yet to be unleashed.

You live for you
Of course that is the way of modern world
It makes you selfish
Look after number one
No one else will look after you
Maybe your lover will - not always though some just want to take
A true lover will give you help and comfort in times of strife

That first line made me smile/laugh. Nice poem. All of it, but can't get over the first.

Being selfish. Leave you celebrating alone one day.
"Your plight is s**t for me
Mine is a case
I cleansed my body
And the sorrow is less."
The above lines. Can be done and the sorrow may be forgotten. A lonely and greedy life leave no wealth behind. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

I guess its okay to be selfish intermittently, but to be selfish all the time is uncouth...a good comment on this subject though; being selfish can be demeaning; belittling; on the other hand, one must look out for oneself or who will? so it goes both ways I presume. Nice write!

If you don't look after yourself you can't be sure others will do it for you. We have a duty to care for ourselves, that puts us in a good place for ensuring we can look out for others too. People who don't respect and consider our own feelings aren't worth the effort. It takes two to tango. Good to read you Sneh. Welcome back:)

It's sad when other people look at self-care as a selfish act. Sure, it's important to help others, but we should take care of ourselves, too. There's a thin line between the balance and the fall towards a toxic imbalance. Great poem!

The day you say and believe, "i owe to no one. Nothing" that's when i all starts for you. Faces have so many layers these days. Words are spoken too often that its almost impossible to know which one's real and other not. Love, love for someone else is alright but we all should make sure that we love ourselves a bit more than them. And, often, we should prepare a dish in our kitchen for us only. That can solve like half the problems. Thank you for writing this.
