• How Poor Are You?

    Smriti Gautam |

    How poor are you
    That your honor has to be given to you
    Not from your own satisfaction but that of others?

    How frowned are you
    That when your body loses its senses
    You cannot choose to take hold of it?

    How miserable are you
    That you cannot find joy within yourself
    And depend on someone else to give it to you?

    How stupid are you
    To seek forgiveness from others
    When you cannot give it to yourself?

    And oh,
    How unwise are you
    That you offer hatred
    Even when you know that love lies within you?
