Vanessa Brown

Selfish - Poem by Vanessa Brown

Is it wrong to be happy
When others are not?
Is it worse to be ungrateful
With all that you've got?

Should we be thankful
for all that we have?
Or dwell on the misfortune
That our friends suffer?

I say let us love -
Love what we have,
But lovce more our friends -
Only when others around us are happy -
Can we then maintain true happiness.
