Mahassada

Grip your possessions tight.
It's another's wish,
That it should slack.
Others are sad,
Even when you eat.
Not because you ate worse,
It's a feeling you don't worth it.
Not because they are better than you,
Because they are mahassada.

When you begin a venture,
To increase your pace.
Many will laugh,
And write you off.
Not because you started worse.
Even when you live,
Others wish you death.
Not because you live worse,
Because they are mahassada.

Some are bros or sis.
But when you laugh,
They want to see you cry.
Not because you sounded worse.
Others are friends or kins,
That try to pull you down.
Not because you commit offence,
Because they are mahassada.
