The Indian Giver

Giver of words of love
Then torrents of abuse
Giver of gifts of kindness
Until they have no use

Needing them back so badly
Cos your games they will not play
Giver of nothing worth having
When given in this way

Think before you give
What your reasons are
If it is to receive
Then you wont get very far

Your guts will churn with bitterness
Your heart will beat with pain
To be an Indian giver
Is truly noones gain

Give freely of yourself
Expect nothing in return
Then there is no disappointment
Just the joy that you have learnt

The giving is the gift of you
In that moment in time
Then peace and harmony
Becomes yours and also mine

“stay beautiful”
