Sonnet: - 4 Win Win Game

They say –
If you can love others
Then only
They will love you.

But I say –
First you love yourself,
Then only
You will know
The joy in loving other people
Is much more than that of yours.

And right from that point only,
You will be hungry to love people.

Which itself is a win win game
Between loving people and love of yours.

    Absolutely, Amitava, I agree with you wholeheatedly with your thoughts in
    this poem. If you can't love yourself, who then can you love?

    Your ability to love comes from within your being, it has been shaped and formed by
    parents, siblings, those around you when young. If your teaching has been negligent,
    abusive, unloving, there is not much to go on. Later in life you must try and learn what
    you should have been taught when younger. That is to love yourself. Really fantastic
    poem, Amitava. Enjoyed reading it, thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
