Poems

Who are They?

men's white top

He spoke,

But hardly ever listened

She judged

But did not like being told off

He promised

But never delivered

Do they sound familiar?

Focused on the self

Not caring who gets affected by their words and actions

Wanting only the best

Not bothering about how it came about

Pitying the lesser fortunate

Not wanting to extend even a little help or even a word of kindness

Attracted to beauty

But only the kind that pleased the eye

Richness exuding from their style

Pockets generally full of wealth

Who are they?

People we find unattractive

Because they are

What we deny being

But also,

A reflection of our ugly sides

And they’re

You and me,

On most or some days.
