Satisfaction… #5Lines

A king gave food to the guest,

So did a poor family too, more happily,

The guest was satisfied more with the poor,

A king has surplus, so giving is no big deal,

But being poor and still sharing, remarkable

Things Remain Unsaid… #5Lines #Gogyohka

She wants to say something,

I too want to say something,

She waits for me to start,

And I say “Ladies First”,

Nothing really is said in the end.

* * * * *

Don’t keep the things unsaid, for they may mean something to someone. The initial dilemma to say those things may be a barrier but don’t let that thing to be a show stopper.
