For the last couple of days
I was not feeling good
After looking for the root cause
Lately I have understood.
I created hurt while giving
As I never kept myself first
In the process of offering them water
I forgot to quench my own thirst.
Earlier I used to look for approval and appreciation
Now it's perfectly fine if they don't give me preference
As I have realised the lesson of life
My feelings have nothing to do with
People in my circumference.
Emotions I create are solely my responsibility
As taking care of self should be on my priority.
Expectations create disappointments
As they are not easily fulfilled
So before pouring coffee in their mug
Better ensure that yours is refilled.
If you possess it with you
Only then you'll be able to give
So start minding your own business
Better live and let others live!!
