selflessness and pieces

to cut yourself into pieces
and give them all a part
to gain in increases
before you come to depart
I learnt the art
of selflessness 
during a winter spent in lahore
before a spring that somehow tore
away the baby tulips from the sun
I learnt, to give them all a single part
of the entire sum
of being
and yet to still feel 
as though it isn't nearly enough
it's tough, so goddamn tough
to be there for people
to be there
and when I'm going through the motions
I never ever dare
                                ask        for a soul to be near
cos I understand that to tear
yourself into parts 
is more than one can ever ask
for, so learn
learn to be there for yourself
and learn to be kind
