I Do Not.. - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

I Do not...
I do not teach
for fame or gain..

I do not love to
be loved in return...

I do not smile to
cross those miles..

I do not dress
to impress, others...

I do not sing
to fly on my wings..

I do not cry
to show my despair...

I do not dance
to give you a chance..

I Do all these
to be at ease
to make me
feel pleased.

    Everyone has potency inner...

    You can feel great about
    What you don't want to be!
    How much you can feel free!
    What you can accomplish!
    And what your potential is! ”

    A good read. Thank you.

    In our life most of the times we do things for the sake of others.A good satire on this strange nature of human being.It is the best poem in my eyes because it gives others an ample opportunity to think on their very nature to show others.In this process we loose our happiness and the charme of our personal life.Great Job.
