IT'S A POETRY BASED ON THE FEELING OF A NORMAL PERSON WHO LOVES ATTENTION AND HER/HIS EGO IS PRIOR TO EVERY THING.

 

It’s your ego that matters

I don’t want to approach them

Rater they should approach me.

I don’t love them

But, they should love me.

 

I don’t want admirers

But, want individuality.

I don’t want to become a beginner

But, be famous in reality.

 

My heart bursts

Not that I have no friend

But it’s my ego that hurts

Thinking my life will have a lone end.

 

I don’t ask

If their words I couldn’t catch.

I am not shy

But it’s my nature that doesn’t match.

 

I like them

When, am specially treated.

I talk to them

When, am exclusively greeted

 

Life doesn’t go like this

Or is the true friendship you will ever miss.

There is only one sacrifice which make us rich of friends, is really sacrifice of our ego. All human beings are social animals, none is an island. An egoist is always doomed to be alone. I like the flow of this beautiful poem. One thing which I always like about your poems is, you always have a message to convey in them.
