'Intellect' Starts With An ' I '..

Written for 3WW... Cherish, Nausea, Guarantee..

'Intellect' Starts With An ' I '..



Let me confess
I learnt the hard way, that
These three words
"I, Me, Myself"
Guarantee nausea
For those around
And the absence starts
Getting cherished
Catching this self-enhancing
Ego-based habit  
And then working on
Eliminating it
With deliberate efforts
To reach from, "Hey,
Is he joining for the picnic,
Well then leave us out,"
To "Hey, lets go together
We won't go without you
And we are not here
To listen to a NO"
Taught me one nore thing
If I talk good about you,
Then of course you will like me
And If I talk good about myself
You won't like me
And then does it mean
You liking yourself is Ok
But I liking myself is not
Well be as it may
While  sharing this
And deeply contemplating
On this particular lesson
I find it indeed very
Comforting to see that
'Intellect' starts with an ' I '...
