hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

I need not be apologetic

I need not be apologetic
As life turned out to be tragic
Nothing went as per wish
I was simply finished

Luck too played great part
But I will have to depart
From the scene of selfish world
As I felt motionless and cold

I was known as sticky person
May offer arguments without any reason
Invite wrath and unnecessary quarrel
Fortune was not to swing well

Well, married to a nice lady
Had children to feel lucky
Nothing short in daily routine
Everything was perfectly fine

I feel no good
As I have been quietly misunderstood
Nowhere have I found favor
Least to talk about honor

I would have loved to follow
Any one that my conscious allowed
But I found everyone compromising
I found all the essences missing

I could not stand among
As every time they proved me wrong
I was mot to be taken in consideration
This was leading to some king of frustration

When I go back to analyze?
I can not happily summarize
I did try to make other happy and oblige
But, in fact, they all had no time to realize

    This poem gets my attention. Maybe it's because I could have written it from my own experience. The poem describes the life of a 4.4 is one of 9 personality types of a typing system called the enneagram. I have a more positive outlook today. All my experiences, good and bad, are part of who I am today. And I think I am OK today. Be well and happy. Bob

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
