As you protrude your heart
in search of affection , harmony
and refuge ;
People may often reject you once,
may be twice,
eventually thrice too.
But as you grow visibly “big”,
meaningfully in some way,
the same group of people would very much
love to be with you .
All on a sudden you become such a pleasant company
for too many people,
that you feel like giving yourself pinches ,
time and again.
