CLASS 10TH ENGLISH – ABOUT ME

I have not one but two names,

‘Hey you!’And ‘What’s your name?’

That is how I am known

And I have no one else to blame.

Who would remember someone

Who is good at nothing?

Who has, can or ever will

Excel even in a single thing?

CLASS 10TH ENGLISH – ABOUT ME

Some are good in studies
Others in many a game.
Some paint a pretty picture
And earn for themselves a name

But what about me?
I have nothing that can impress a single soul,
Neither talent nor looks, nor ability
To achieve a solitary goal.


But wait, am I really useless?
Only some flesh and bones?
Or do I have something inside me
A quality that is truly my own?

A heart that beats for others
And joys and sorrows it shares
A mind that looks beyond
A soul that truly cares.


In this world today
If a loving heart is a treasure
Then I pray to everyone
To judge me using a new measure.

Don’t judge me by how many prizes I never win
But by how many sorrows I share.
Not by the number of claps I don’t earn
But by my ready stock of compassion and care.


Don’t ignore me, don’t look through
Pay me a little heed.
A little nod, a friendly smile,
That is all I need.


I am an average and ordinary boy
Treat me at least like a person.
Give me a name, anything that you like
But please, at least, make me feel human.
