Self Praise

By: Bhavana K

Thank you for not letting
Others to play with you,
Thank you for not adjusting for the meager.
Thank you for avoiding those who eats your soul
And peace of mind.
Yes! You broke down, 
You lost,
You screamed,
But you are up now.
Dear, thank you for getting on your own
When you thought you can't!
Thank you for understanding, for staying,
For holding back,
And moreover for loving.
If you haven't supported me on times
Then I don't know who will!
Your kindness, affection, and care,
Keeps me going...
