Have you ever been termed as a person who loves just being You. You do not interfere in anyones life and yet you end up being the focus of everyone’s attention doing nothing. This is a short shout out to all the people who have the problem with dealing through these hurtful comments
Yes I am Selfish
Termed today by a very closed one,
Proud to have known the battle won,
Forgetting all the things I have done or chosen,
Selfish I am if they think by this their life is less burdened.
I don’t mind living my dreams and my aspirations,
You don’t have any reason to be jealous,
I was always happy with your success,
why can’t you see my decisions as selfless,
Blind folded you are with all the grapevine heard,
Selfish I am, as I believe walking alone is better than being a part of the herd.
It doesn’t matter to anyone anymore,
I was the suffering one till the end of shore,
You were busy in your own life changing doors,
Who would I have banked on as nobody was seen,
In my life I am my own hero,
Selfish I am even if you think I am a zero
It is a matter of fact, you cannot see anyone better than you,
You were feeling inferior as I could out do you,
But my friend remember it is not a game against each other,
Even if you beat me up I would be the one to applaud first,
As for me it was always we,
Now I think you cannot see.
I am deeply hurt by the words as they turned into wound,
Your ego is never satisfying as a magic hound,
But do not forget the world is round,
What goes around comes around,
I would still believe do good and forget,
To give and live without any regret,
Yes I am selfish if I thinking wise and not making noise,
I am here to live by choice and not compromise!
