And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

I am human,
Offcourse not God,
I have my limits,
I can tolerate up to certain extent,
If situation further deteriorates,
Than I loose patience,
And start hitting,
The way I was hit.

But mind you,
I always follow one norm,
Never to act,
But I always react.

This way,
Sometimes sheen goes out of the issue,
And the person concerned is not effected,
But this is my handicap,
I have been brought up this way,
This has deeply inculcated in me,
I think,
That is why,
I have suffered.
