Treasure Island

Dr Hitesh Sheth

(Birth Place: Earth)

Why Me?


When the hopes are hassled
And relationships are rattled
Naïveté asks, why me?
When wishes are whacked
And dreams are dashed
Naïveté asks, why me?
When fantasies are fettered
And blessings are battered
Naïveté asks, why me?
When desires are demolished
And ambitions are admonished
Naïveté asks, why me?
When temptations are traumatized
And passions are pulverized
Naïveté asks, why me?

Strangely,

Naïveté with influence
And naïveté with affluence
Never asks, why me?
Naïveté with name
And naïveté with fame
Never asks, why me?
Naïveté with health
And naïveté with wealth
Never asks, why me?
Naïveté with fiefdom
And naïveté with wisdom
Never asks, why me?
Naïveté with beauty
And naïveté with booty
Never asks, why me?

    a person usually never thank God when they are happy, nor do they ask why me, when they get what they want, but only in times of crisis they think of God and sometimes curse God, and ask WHY ME? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? (Report) Reply

    it balances out doctor...
    people with influence and affluance, people with health and wealth.... do ask... why me? just scratch the surface... and try to see from near.... everywhere you shall unearth grave insecurities and fear...... (Report) Reply

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
