Author: Mark Spencer
Are you filled with resentment,
When you donít get your due?
When you compliment others,
Should they compliment you?
If they donít reciprocate,
How will you, then, respond?
Will you feel you were cheated,
Or think that youíve been conned?
Whatís done for selfish reasons,
Should not be rewarded.
Compliments should be sincere,
So tell me why you believe,
I am obligated,
To respond to a tribute,
For if you now resent me,
For having not replied,
Will you try to convince me,
Your angst is justified?
Just the fact itís in your heart,
Should tell you what is true.
For each compliment you gave,
You wanted one for you.

I think we're all guilty of this, at least once in our lives. Don't you think Mark?

Mark! Greetings poetic pioneer! The messenger! You always write those type of poems that makes one scratch their chin and go hmm... This applies to me.... Shh. You didn't here that.
I've been guilty quite a few times myself.
Got a kick out of this poem. :) Thanks MS!
