Geetha Jayakumar (Kerala Palakkad)
I am Greedy!
I am greedy for I longed to hear few heartfelt words
That never came from you.
I am greedy
I expected a few kind words for I cared and looked after you lovingly
I am greedy
I expected a few soothing words for
I drank the tears of pain and hatred given by you.
I am greedy I expected something in return from you.
Which I never should have.
Words are very precious.
Its like drops of water.
A few drops of water can really save ones life.
It may be in human nature
A words of appreciation can do wonders.
The fact of life is
One should not be addicted to words
Without that life will become lifeless.
One should not feel low
If one doesn't get appreciation.
Think it was our duty and free yourself from expecting anything in return.
This will bring peace in ones life.
Expecting something in return
May be a few words,
Make me feel
I am greedy!
