To stop self-pity


I pity my son, chronically ill,
Hence his children with no fortune.
I pity my daughter, a caged bird
Also her son whose love not paid.
I pity my wife, a cancer patient
When I detected a tumor in throat.
Tendency to pity them has gone up
To put a full stop to my self-pity.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
