Self-love

Kaushal Kishore

I had always been driven by self
engulfed by own self
as I liked and loved myself
I used to believe
my own values and conduct
as the best in the world…

I had safely assumed 
that I didn’t snore,
but others pointed me out
that I did snore
and their own sleep pattern
got disturbed,
I took corrective measures
without any shame…

I was confident
the way I used to carry myself
was perfect,
but my well-wishers pointed out
that I tilt to the left,
I mended my ways
without any guilt…

Such feedbacks
might have pleased me or not
at that very moment
but have certainly added values
to my personality…

I wonder
whether I would have been
what I’m today
had I ignored or labelled them
as futile or hostile
in the first place…

I still do love myself,
rather more intensely,
but now I also love…
