Created Selfish


The story of the Selfish

says, it is wrong to be so.

One must do and appear to please

others even if it is for a show

and live up to the proprietary expectations

where judgement is rather fast than slow.

At the sight of even a glimmer of dream or desire,

the Selfless ones as they think so

will label and chop the small bird.

Beat it down till it becomes featherlessΒ 

and call it a sheep of the herd.

Mere age doesn’t qualify for judgeship

and mere dreams or desires doesn’t make one selfish

but if it does, then please know this:

I am Selfish.
