What Went Wrong??

Sitting here
watching students
answering questions,
I too have
many of those
in my mind.
Why, how, when
are only the
tip of the
iceberg!
I had only
been doing
my work
as usual,
as sincerely
as ever.
Why it was
taken away
suddenly
without rhyme
or reason?
Where did
I go wrong?
Worked to my
bones,
stretched to
limits
unappreciated.
What I see
today
diligence,
efficiency
does not pay.
Sycophancy
carrying tales
are the orders
of the day.
Does it make
the hurt
Any less?
Not for
sometime to
come
But it will
fade and
I will
still be doing
whatever I am
best at.
Working
with my
heart,
mind and soul..

hmm you got fired, what?

gautami tripathy said...

No. I was not fired!!! But something like that.....no one really appreciates a very efficient worker. Thats becos it shows the others deficiency!!

Manoj said...

Not really...its just jealousy and its one the things you cannot really buy...so no complaints, i guess.
