We Gave Up by Maheshwer Peri

Somewhere along our lives

We gave up
Happiness to be victorious
Satisfaction for success
Contentment for growth
Life for a career

We gave up
Beauty to look sexy
Natural to look artificial
Health to junk
Fitness to fashion

We gave up
Letter to spirit
Correctness to fairness
Justice to Law
Courage to practicality

We gave up
Us to I
We to me
Heart to head
Smiles to frowns

We gave up
Modesty to money
Humility to pride
Nobility to showoff
Wisdom to intelligence

We gave up
Friends to prospects
Blood to money
Self to others
God to devil.

We gave up
We should have been.

Maheshwar Peri
