Forget self interest

Why do you wish for someone?
To rush and help for work to be done
This is expected but not always
As it has some answer to pay

We are made of hard substance
That makes one not to miss single chance
It is felt not at once
But all the time to grab it and dance

Such is fine attitude from an individual
It should come as natural and not casual
So it makes hard on the part of human being
To depend on others and stay out of ring

For how many days one can help others
That may always lend you in trouble and bother
It is better to be self reliant and face
If one wants to be tough and remain in race

You may find many friends in circle
But hardly few may try to ward of trouble
They will prefer to watch from distance
And shy away from the scene at once

It has its own consequences
You can craw many instances
Nothing like dependent than dependence
Always happiness and no sadness

So we need to search only those
Who can have trust to repose?
Lend helping hand in time
And forget self interest sometimes

Poem of the Day

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,
