Wish And Greed

I would talk less and work more
I would rather hurt myself than hurting him
I could feel elated at his success rather than mine
I would have spared a meal or two to him rather than wasting mine
I would have cared for him rather than taking care
of myself
I would have married a person who loved me rather than the person I loved
I would trust him rather than doubt him
I feel happy rather than seek happiness
I think I am blessed rather than thinking he is blessed
I feel I should correct myself instead of brooding over my mistakes
I am happy if you are eagerly waiting for my mail rather than me writing the mail to you

Childless couple wishes for any child
Expecting couple wishes for a boy child
When we have nothing We aspire for some thing
When we have some thing We need every thing
When I need help I kneel down to seek help
When I can help others I don’t come forward to help
I pity him when he is in trouble
I envy him when I am in trouble
I get elated when I am appreciated
I get dejected when he is elated
