Acceptance Of Self

© Copyright Renu Vyas

We adjust our expectations
And quietly give up our dreams
We change our life’s definitions
And destroy our self esteem

We change the fabric of our existence
And on every turn we compromise
We lose our very originality
And fail to notice its demise

All this we do at times for someone
Who neither reciprocates nor deserves
We hurt, we cry, we worry, we fret
And then we call all this love

“ Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” – Bernard M. Maruch
